Teresinha Roberts with WildPaper cards

Teresinha in the News - links to media


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

Teresinha currently specialises in projects using textiles and natural dyes and in carved water birds. 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 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.
