Having recently relocated to the Kent coast from London, Heather specialises in macramé, crochet and knitted textiles. Driven by a passion for craftsmanship and a love of design, Heather's diverse textiles combine her fascination with materials and process with an experimental edge.
Heather's new collection of macramé interior products aim to incorporate traditional processes with a contemporary aesthetic and each piece is handmade by Heather in her Folkestone studio. A desire to inspire others through teaching has led to a range of exciting workshops for students and creatives in partnership with others. Recent workshop hosts include Babington House, the Royal College of Art and Jane Bowler. Heather works with numerous educational institutions and currently works as a lecturer at Birmingham City University and Morley College.
After graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2009 with an MA in Knitted Textiles, Heather went on to collaborate with Fashion Designer and fellow RCA graduate, Jane Bowler. Heather works closely with Jane, creating innovative pieces which incorporate her tactile fabrics and processes with the brands' trademark materials and diverse design aesthetic. The duo also run a series of experimental workshops in the settings of Jane's East London studio, sharing their passion for unconventional materials and experimental processes.
Working on a consultancy and freelance basis Heather has worked for clients including the BBC, Saga Furs, Spinexpo, Textile View Magazine, DZ Group, TSE, Rebecca Minkoff, Intropia, Rebecca Taylor, and WGSN.
