About Emma

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 textiles, 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, Emma Herian Fibre Artist is Emma’s creative business selling, teaching and writing about her handmade needle felted animals and accessories.
15 years on and her workshops are proving to be a popular way of learning this therapeutic craft.

Emma has also been a feature writer for Making Magazine, creating and writing various craft tutorials (http://sewrecycled.blogspot.co.uk/p/features.html) 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.
