Talie Linseed aka Natalie Linney is a textile artist, and creative facilitator based in Manchester, UK. After graduating with BA (Hons) in Visual Arts from Salford University Natalie continued to develop her creative practice focusing primarily on print based techniques.

In 2012 she learned natural dyeing methods during her time working with textile artist Kate Fletcher in Tasmania, Australia, and has since worked with natural dyeing processes to create unique pieces.

Throughout history, before the advent of synthetic dyeing processes, people have coloured fibres using local plants and minerals. This process dates back to 10,200 BC and is still the same one used today.

In her practice, Natalie utilises these ancient dyeing techniques with natural and man-made objects found in the contemporary urban environment to produce entirely unique textile pieces. Working with traditional methods, she creates striking and delicate patterns which emerge in unpredictable ways to reflect the materials used and the place in which it was produced.
