Curious Fox Fibres
Dan Fuechtmann is a queer textile artist based in Amiskwaciwâskahikan (ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ ) or so-called Edmonton, Canada. They started their textile journey while studying graphic design as a creative outlet to take a break from staring at computer screens and to experiment with colour, form, and texture.
One frame loom became a collection of textile tools – they now work with tapestry and floor looms, spinning wheels, a drum carder, punch needles, and dye! They are passionate about exploring the role of craft in society, especially how traditional craft practices can offer us a path to sustainable textile production. Their studio practice focuses on sustainable materials and using reclaimed fibre and yarn scraps to create many of their products.
