Faculty Profile for Laura Trach


Laura Trach

Haliburton School of The Arts

Laura Trach was drawn to fabrics at an early age. After completing Fashion Design at Fanshawe College, she spent a number of years in the garment industry, where she perfected her pattern drafting skills and garment construction techniques. After attending the Textile Surface Design program at Fleming, Laura changed directions, still working with textile materials, but moving into textile art. Now, she is making landscapes from fibre and thread. Laura has been an instructor in the Fibre Arts program at Fleming since 2008, teaching Applied Design as well as Basic Sewing. She also teaches classes in creativity with fabric, as well as her own style of thread painting and needle felting. Laura has given talks and workshops for the OCC, various Quilt Guilds, and offers workshops at her studio in the Haliburton area. Laura's work has been shown at a number of exhibitions including World of Threads (2007 and 2009), Eastern Ontario Masterworks (2009), and Threadworks 2010. Currently her work is available at the Ethel Curry Gallery www.orangecatstudio.com
