Meet the artist & maker

A rural upbringing gave Heather a practical making and mending background: sewing, gardening and finding and renovating old things.

Having completed her degree in History of Design and Architecture, she developed an interest in working with metal, particularly the textures that can be produced. As well as making jewellery she has a love of textiles and has been sewing since the age of two.
