Laura Berkowitz Gilbert
After graduating with a BA in History from University of Pennsylvania, Laura moved to New York City and immersed herself in the world of design while receiving her BFA in graphic design from Parsons School of Design. While working at various design firms and then her own company, Laura entered the world of fiber through knitting and ultimately felting. She launched Tocco Studio in 2016 with hand-knit felted vessels and votives. She soon began incorporating her natural dyeing practice into her fiber work. While she loves all natural dyes, indigo is her true love. She is excited to introduce her students to this wondrous dye that is rich in color and history.
