Heather Young is the founder of The Craft Lab. She has an extensive background in clothing & textile design spanning more than twenty years.

She designed and sold the woman’s line to stores in New York, Montreal, Tokyo and Vancouver. Design collaborations include contemporary dance, film, theater companies and boutiques. In 2013 Heather completed a Masters of Fashion and Textiles from the Glasgow School of Art specializing in textile design using natural dyes. Her interests lie in sustainability and fashion, design process and building community through making.
