About Emma Herian, Fibre Artist, Writer & Tutor
Emma Herian has been creative ever since she was able to knit on two pencils during school story time!
Having studied ceramics and plastics at Brighton University she then went on to work for a furniture design company in London. Emma's life changed when she had children which then brought her back to her love for sewing, vintage textiles and knitting, exhibiting and selling unique handmade pieces all over the world.
The needle felted pieces of work evolved when she was asked to teach the craft at a workshop which has taken Emma's love of making into a whole new direction. Being a self taught needle felter, Emma’s background in three dimensional crafts allows her to mould and create characterful yet whimsical pieces out of wool, each one unique yet charming. 15 years on and her workshops are proving to be a popular way of learning this therapeutic craft.
