Laura Trach a well-known fibre artist who resides in the Haliburton Highlands has joined the other Canadian Artists who are contributors to www.MadeInHaliburton.ca. Laura is a graduate of Fanshawe College’s Fashion Design Program and subsequently changed the direction of her career when she studied the Surface Textile Design Program at Fleming College. She currently teaches in the Fibre Arts Program at Fleming College in the Haliburton Highlands, Ontario, Canada.
Her work was recently featured in a show at the Rails End Gallery and Arts Centre in the village of Haliburton titled “Seasons”. It was inspiring to see the intricate detail of the leaves of all the different trees, depicted in different season. The leaves of each tree were shaped to match the real-life leaves of the tree replicas.
The show included samples of her clothing design work as well as framed images for the wall. Here are some examples.
