Alice Tsibulsky is a textile artist with a background in cultural and environmental anthropology. She completed a Fibre Arts certificate course in Canada and has worked at a sewing studio in Toronto for several years. She likes making all different things, but lately her focus has been on (hand) quilting and natural dyeing as means of slowing down and enjoying the process of her craft. Alice is hosting workshops and courses with these two techniques at De Steek. Check Alice’s Instagram here for more inspiration.
*Earth pigments are naturally occurring minerals that can be used on textiles, but work differently than natural dyes.
