Biography      Work Samples      

Virginia C. Tucker has been crafting and creating art for most of her life—it’s just not the type of art most people hang on a wall. Her mother taught her how to sew, quilt, and paint when she was a young lady, and she took art in school but as an adult wasn’t able to spend as much time on artistic endeavors as she wished.

In 1999 Angela Burnley of Burnley and Trowbridge, Williamsburg, Virginia, invited Tucker and her two children to a market fair at Mansker’s Station in Tennessee, and that’s all it took for her to start looking into historic crafts she could learn and share.

Tucker started with finger weave and cording before moving on to making floorcloths for twelve years. Burnley advised her to research how to dye and block-print scarves from the 18th Century. She tried different techniques using both natural and chemical dyes, finding the one that gave both vibrancy and color fastness.

In 2010, her husband began to join her at historic events. She loves re-creating 18th-Century items in various forms and colors, blending new techniques with old styles to create the same type of scarves, fabrics, and a myriad of other items suitable for the 18th Century and today.
