Teresinha's bio

Wild Colours - Exciting colours from Natural Dyes


Wild Colours natural dyes > Contact us > About us


Teresinha planting out woad - natural dye plantsTeresinha Roberts is a Brazilian-born textile artist and sculptress who has an MSc in biology and a City & Guilds in art. She wrote a field guide to southern Brazilian birds and worked on a World Wide Fund for Nature project in the Amazon before turning to art and sculpture.

Teresinha specialises in projects using textiles and natural dyes. She has a workshop in Birmingham's prestigious artists' complex, the Custard Factory.

Teresinha dyes fabric with woad grown on her Birmingham allotment and has appeared in an oft-repeated BBC "Gardeners' World" programme on BBC TV, as well as in other radio and TV broadcasts.

She uses the natural dyes grown on her allotment to produce a unique range of handmade greeting cards that incorporate fabrics, such as silk and cotton, and a range of natural artefacts in unusual and striking combinations.

She is a member of the Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers and comes from a family with a long line of textile tradition. Her ancestors were weavers and lived near Erfurt in Thuringia - the heart of the woad industry in Germany – before emigrating from Germany to Brazil.
