Emma Heaney
My name is Emma Heaney and I specialise in embroidery. From a young age, I have always loved interiors and textiles, spending all my pocket money on new cushions, pillows and bedspreads for my room. At A-levels, I took Textiles, which cemented my passion. It was then that I started getting interested in sustainability and completed my first sustainability focused Textiles project. The external examiner commenting it was the first of its kind that she had seen. Over my time at NTU, I have tackled issues from social fragmentation to plastic ocean pollution. My final year project is a neutral interiors collection aimed to tackle the issue of waste and ‘fast interiors’ whilst being a practical solution to a new sustainable problem of ‘Generation Rent’. I believe that everyone should have one goal in life, which they pursue with passion and drive, making a sustainable difference is mine.
