As well as almost certainly being one of Britain's
most experienced rug makers and teachers of rug-making,
Heather has an unrivalled understanding of the technique
in all its forms and applications, an infectious enthusiasm
and limitless patience.
A former social worker and occupational therapist,
Heather's experience of working with a very wide variety of
'clients' is particularly relevant. In the UK, she has run workshops
for inmates at Durham Prison, teaches rug-making
to children age 5 upwards and leads weekly sessions, including people
with special needs and learning difficulties. She has won international renown, teaching rug-making
in Africa, Australia, Canada
and across the USA.
