Eva Camacho-Sanchez, Fibers

Eva Camacho-Sanchez

Eva Camacho-Sanchez is a fibre artist born and raised in Andalucia, Spain, now living in western Massachusetts, USA. Her work is the result of the fusion of the ancient art form of feltmaking with modern techniques to create new and elegant styles. She uses 100% natural and biodegradable materials, where possible locally-sourced and sustainable with an emphasis on low-impact environmental and creative processes such as reduced water consumption. Camacho-Sanchez usually starts by hand-dyeing the wool fibers (with natural dyes she has created herself from plant matter), which are then felted together with fine silk. To create patterns on the silk, she uses techniques such as free motion embroidery, hand-stitching, beading and printing. Although she is devoted to felt, Eva is equally intrigued by other mediums, fibers and fabrics.
