Listen with Your Eyes

Laura Thompson Designer-Maker

The website of designer-maker Laura Thompson who specializes is fibre art using fabric and mixed media.


I'm a designer-maker who lives in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. I love fabric and mixed media, but most of all the joy of creating as a way to enrich our lives. Years ago I studied at Urchfont Manor College, Wiltshire, UK, earning my City and Guilds in Design and Embroidery. Since then I've been wending my way through the ups and downs of an artistic life.  

Today I design and make using a wide range of media that almost always begins with fabric. My work often reflects people or community and the shared humanity that makes us who we are.
