Emily grew up on the Blue Ridge Parkway where she was immersed in a culture of Appalachian Craft from the very beginning. She attended the University of Arkansas and Appalachian State University where she studied Making Practices and received a doctorate in the subject. She did a TED talk called Craftonomics which summarizes her research in the area. Emily’s primary mediums are constantly evolving, but currently, she’s working in wood, leather and stained glass.
