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.

 

Emma Herian Fibre Artist is Emma’s creative business selling, teaching and writing about her handmade needle felted animals and accessories.

Emma has used many of her craft skills to create small animated films which can be seen over on her YouTube channel as well as her Instagram account.

Emma has also been a feature writer for Making Magazine, creating and writing various craft tutorials and has had her work published in various craft books.

 

Her work has also been featured on the Channel 4 ‘Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas 2015’ programme, a Christmas tableau of needle felted animals in a winter wonderland.
