Announcement    Soft sculpture, needle felting kits, print and collage inspired by nature. Designed and made by Artist Emma Holden MA RCA.

Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2003, I have worked as an artist and run art workshops for adults and children.

In 2008 I moved from London to the South West with my partner, where we have started a family. Since the birth of our son Herbie, I've been looking for new ways to indulge my creative urges whilst providing a steady income. I have been teaching myself a number of new artistic techniques and passing these skills on to adults and children through my Art workshops. Through these workshops, I have discovered a passion for needle felting, lino-cut and collage.

Currently I am focussing most of my creative energies on needle-felting. It's very addictive, I am always fascinated by transformative process of working fleece with just a barbed needle.
I specialize in subjects from nature, and work hard to breathe life into them by making each subject as true to life as possible. I use Organic fleece, merino wool, fairy wool, alpaca fleece with a wire armature for the body, horse hair for whiskers, wooden or glass eyes, and if they need weighting, for balance, I create a little pouch of dried corn and barley, which is contained in the tummy of the creature.

The possibilities of needle felting are almost limitless, so if you like my work and would like a custom made creature, please get in touch and we can discuss the details.
