About Laura Hricko

Laura Hricko is an artist, art educator and lifelong Philadelphian dedicated to the conviction that art is transformative and capable of enriching the lives of all people. Laura’s artistic practice involves a variety of fiber arts techniques including sewing, quilting, embroidery and textile surface design. She is curious about the potential a material has, and the historical and social implications of the processes she uses. Most recently, she has been captivated by the processes of natural dyeing, which merge her love of gardening and science with her love of art. Natural dyeing allows Laura to feel a connection with nature and history, as she employs these ancient craft techniques to coax color from plants and create beautiful and wearable works of art.

Laura holds a BFA and an MEd from the Tyler School of Art and Architecture. She can be found in her South Philly patio tending to her dye garden and chasing squirrels off of her fig trees and grape vines with the help of her husband and two year old daughter.
