Emily is a freelance stylist, craft designer and all round creative, who is a thought leader in paper craft. She has always been creative and crafty; from getting mucky with glitter and glue when she was little, to completing a degree in Illustration at Brighton university, to finally landing her dream role of Home & Craft Editor on Woman's Weekly Magazine. She went on to work on The Craft Network, producing projects and presenting online tutorials for Ideal Home and teaching live workshops at brand events. She now hosts her own workshops in Heals, West Elm and Kirstie Allsopp's The Handmade Fair, teaching everything from marbling and watercolour to origami and quilling.
Emily's absolute favourite time of the year is Christmas: "nothing comes close to the enchanting and magical feel you experience at Christmas, where you can go to town with trimmings and decorations, garlands and sparkle. I love the variety of crafts you can produce at this time of year too; from the delicate details on the table to giant stars and festive banners, you really can go all out if you want! Papercraft is my passion, so it made complete sense to combine this with my love of the festive season, to create an inspiring book of Christmas craft and wonder!"
