About Heather

Heather is an artist, woodworker and restorer living in Northampton, MA. Raised in Ithaca, NY, Heather had an unconventional upbringing centered around art making, the outdoors, cooking, exploration and play. At the Evergreen State College, she studied science, social justice, indigenous story telling, drawing, painting, bookbinding and animation, but spent most of her time in the printmaking studio. After receiving her Bachelor or Liberal Arts/Printmaking she shifted to exploring woodworking. Driven to learn carpentry and restoration skills, Heather moved to Boston to pursue a degree in Preservation Carpentry from the North Bennet Street School. Since completing her degree, she has worked for Robert Mussey Associates, one of the top furniture conservation companies in Boston, and Trimitsis Woodworking, a high-end residential carpentry company specializing in restoration and custom woodwork. Currently working full time as owner and sole fabricator at HT Woodshop. When Heather isn’t in the shop she can be found skating, baking or spending time with her husband Griffin and their kitty Willow and puppy Leeloo.


 

Values

I believe it is my responsibility to source lumber close to home. I support women and non-traditional makers because they are transforming and enhancing the building trades. I am committed to a diligent work ethic, a high standard of craftsmanship and authentic, handmade objects. At the end of the day, I want my clients to love their furniture.
