“I explore different mediums to create functional everyday objects"

Working out of her home studio in Hamilton, Ontario, maker Christina Obuch creates handmade home decor and accessories by silk-screening, natural dying, and embroidery. While studying textile design in university, Christina learned to imitate the texture and colour of the earth by surveying the wildlife around her. This often takes her outside the studio and into nature.

Christina gained her love for making from her family, which has a creative history in textiles and furniture. Her mother and grandmother both have a deep love for sewing and her grandfather, a former furniture maker in Italy, has always had an amazing eye for design. Christina enjoys all forms of craft and continues to explore how different mediums can create functional everyday objects.
