About Instructor

High in Fiber Rugs are tufted by Brittany Heyen in Urbana, IL with sustainability in mind by sourcing primarily secondhand yarn, saving scraps for future use, and thrifting items to upcycle. Brittany came across rug tufting videos while itching for a hobby, as many people were, in 2021. After seeing enough satisfying videos of people painting with yarn to make their own carpet creations, she did the research and got started. Since then, she has started hosting workshops to invite others to learn and has popped up at over 30 markets and art shows across the Midwest to share the joy of stumbling upon a stack of rug ingredients that form a cheeseburger.


Brittany Heyen is currently the featured local artist displayed in the Co-op Flatlander Art Gallery.
