About Emma Whitehead Art

Hello & Welcome,

I am Emma Whitehead, a textile artist, designer & teacher from County Down, Northern Ireland. For as long as I can remember the story of the objects and material we surround ourselves with has fascinated me. I work with the worn, the used, the discarded and the broken to illustrate the journey of personal artefacts as they travel from usefulness, to inevitable redundancy and then resonate personal stories in new work. Click on the images below to explore my work.

If you would like to enquire about a commission, you can contact me here.

I also offer workshops, consultancy, and a range of packs, kits and digital resources to encourage your own creativity. You can explore and buy from my online shop or you can call in person to the Top Floor Art Gallery & Open Studios to purchase from my full range of vintage & new haberdashery, kits and artwork.

I offer a textile consultancy service, and have worked on conservation and restoration projects and historical embroidery services for film production.

I am co-director of an artist led art gallery, Top Floor Art Gallery & Open Studios, which shows the work of over forty artists who live and work in Northern Ireland and is the home of the Top Floor Art Studio Group.

As an artist and maker with many years professional experience in textile arts, I find I am at my most creative and inspired when I’m working with other people. Whether I’m working on a personal commission or as a facilitator for a community group there are connections to be made and many stories to tell.

It is very exciting to see the variety of work a group of people can create even if they are using the same basic materials.

I’ve created a range of kits, creativity packs and resources. Included in all the packs & kits is a password for the ready to create area which will hopefully help you on your creative journey.

I also run an annual workshop programme, adapted to Covid 19 circumstances, offering one to one or small group sessions via face to face or online.
