Tamara Klassen is a textile artist from Southern Manitoba. After learning to sew from her grandmother at a young age, she developed a love for textiles early on. Tamara explores natural dye techniques and textile practices from both home and abroad and has studied with artisans in places such as Peru, Mexico, and Laos. Her work reflects a modern perspective on traditional techniques, with a focus on using sustainable, natural materials and dyes.
In addition to participating in several shows and selling her work across Manitoba, Tamara has been teaching classes in textile arts since 2016.
