“Emma’s approach to developing personal responses to and with the natural world are immersive, gentle but guided. I found her work with a group was intuitive and responsive – allowing people to progress at their own pace. During our short session together with a group Emma was able to help everyone achieve – even those who professed to being ‘not creative’. Personal responses to nature were shared in an open, supportive learning environment; participants were visibly pleased with their work and the reactions from the rest of the group.”
