Danielle Fuechtmann (they/them) is a queer textile artist based in 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.
They have always been drawn to beautiful, interesting, and well-designed things. While studying design, they stumbled across an interview talking about the importance of maintaining a studio practice and creating physical objects as a designer; this resonated very deeply and was a big influence during their studies.
One frame loom became a collection of textile tools – they now work with frame looms, two floor looms, a spinning wheel, a drum carder, and punch needles. 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.
All Curious Fox Fibres products are created with thoughtfully sourced natural materials.
They look for suppliers that provide beautiful natural dyes, wools, cottons, linens, and other protein and cellulose fibres while practicing high standards of environmental and social responsibility. They also seek out shops and suppliers that are owned and operated by BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and women. They strive to support fellow small businesses doing good.
Everything is handmade by Danielle in their home studio - dyes are rinsed in their kitchen sink, yarns are spun while sitting in their favourite armchair, and woven goods are created on the collection of looms in their studio space.
