Dye Dept. Artists

Artists  : Emily McIntyre, Ahra Ko and Anthea Mallinson


All the artists who have worked over the years at the Dye Dept. have the wonderful opportunity to hone and broaden their skills base to a very high level of experience and knowledge. They get to know the teams and designers in Vancouver and become respected and coveted practitioners in Vancouver's film industry. As Vancouver's production capabilities have grown, many of our core crew have become Textile Arts and Dyer/Breakdown team leaders.  Our core artists, (in rough chronological order), have included:

Denise Gingrich; Heather (Rupert) Seshadri; Lanny Campbell; Hollie McBeth; Ellie Schultz; Tessa Armstrong; Leana McGregor; Briana Scott; Ahra Ko, Katie Blecker, Emily McIntyre, Layne Beck

As always, my gratitude also goes out to the artists who have come in for special projects from time to time, such as the wonderful jeweller Bridget Catchpole and the talented artist Eleanor Hannan

Thanks also to the many artists in Vancouver's rich pool of talent who have been here for shorter periods, sometimes time and time again. I cannot list you all.
