About your mentors
Suffolk Libraries
Where I belong.
We’re the independent charity that runs Suffolk’s library service. We nurture children’s literacy, support vulnerable people and promote wellbeing across Suffolk.
Michelle Brace
Digital artist and visual mixer
I describe my work as digital mixed media. I use all kinds of things as visual source material including moving image, natural materials, collage, mark making, text and photographic textures to build colourful visual compositions. I've recently been collaborating with dancers, musicians and other visual artists to make studio based work and work for live performance and projection. I often work with communities producing and facilitating projects and have a current emphasis on developing my creative practice to support mental health and well-being.
Joel Millerchip
Illustrator and artist.
I’m Joel Millerchip, an artist, ADHD thinker, illustrator and tattooist-in-the-making. Born in Birmingham, blossoming in Suffolk. My distinctive illustrative style is perfect for bold, impactful designs that work perfectly in print, on a wall, on a screen or all over your left leg. I also Lecture and support creative workshops with young people.

Emily Martin

I am a member of the Bury St Edmunds Library team and enjoy nothing more than curling up with a good book! I am a keen photographer who, beside taking photos of my dog, loves capturing the world around me through a lens.

A photographer
I enjoy teaching and sharing my knowledge. I have a broad range of skills in photography from film to digital disciplines and other more experimental techniques. I am a qualified teacher and have a full DBS.

Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
