episode twelve: renard et fleur

welcome to the twelfth episode of from field to skin! this episode was filmed in may 2019 via facetime between treaty one territory in manitoba and the traditional unceded territories of the st. lawrence iroquoians, mohawk, huron-wendat, and haudenosaunee nations in quebec. andrea runs renard et fleur, formerly known as foxprint fibres (which you can still find her under on etsy and instagram), a natural dye company that she began after her initial research alongside her kids during homeschooling inspired a now long-running love and personal practice. andrea’s commitment to working with locally grown and fibreshed materials, local fibres, and creating connections within her local fibreshed made me very excited to talk with her, and after i had a chance to knit with her all-natural sock yarn for the taygete socks, i knew we needed to share an interview with you all.

as is probably expected at this point with our distance interviews, there are moments where the internet connection flops and words may be difficult to make out. it’s not you, it’s the grid. my apologies if this impacts your viewing experience. if you would like to support future episodes, including ensuring the continuation of in-person interviews, please visit our support page!
