Instructor Bio: Anne Heavey, Anne Heavey was born and grew up in Ireland. At a young age, she was introduced to many crafts, such as; knitting, crocheting, sewing, cross stitch and embroidery. A lot of what Anne was taught came from her mother, who was an avid crafter. Anne and her family immigrated to the United States in 1989 and as her children were growing up, she mostly did a lot of knitting. Her first introduction to wet felting came when she took a class with her sister, in Ireland! She found it fascinating, as she had never worked with unspun wool before. Anne started to learn more about the felting process and the different types of wool that was best for felting. Along the way, she learned how to make many different felting projects using unspun wool and spun wool. Anne’s interest and love of textile crafts lead her to where she is today; an avid knitter and felter along with, crafts like spinning and weaving.
