A collaborative textile studio
Calica Studio is a collaboration between Rebecca Horwitz and Meghan Macdonald. We met in 2007 while studying textiles at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, Canada.
With each collection we gather and scan personal photographs and found objects. Our toolboxes explode with brushes, dyes, oil pastels, mylar and wax. Manipulating images with our hands and computers, we work collaboratively to create a final design. Our artwork is then digitally printed onto soft wool and cashmere, woven in cotton or painted by hand onto pottery. Our process is small scale and sustainable. Check out our sister site Long Distance to find our work alongside a curated selection of pieces from makers who we admire.
