Nikki Katz is the fiber artist behind Assembly of the Wild. She is located in Southern California. Studying Fashion Design in college with a focus on knitwear she spent several years working in the Fashion Industry. She left with the birth of her first child and moved out of the city and to the beach. She began jewelry pieces of her own combining natural materials such as Leather and Wool. Drawing from the beauty of the planet around her she created Assembly of the Wild to bring together Mother Earth’s materials into pieces of jewelry, home decor, and art. Over the past few years, Assembly of the Wild, has evolved to include larger fiber art pieces such as Macrame and Natural Dyes. At this time she also began to share her skills with those who shared an interest around her. She teaches workshops in Southern California, LA, and San Francisco. Some of her favorite classes are at her sons Waldorf School sharing Macramé, Knitting, Cross Stitch and dyes with avocado and onionskins. The past year she has let her spiritual life start to manifest itself in her creations. Allowing her intuition to take over she has been sharing symbols such as the upside down triangle and lotus flower in her work. She aspires daily to create intuitive and intentional pieces using items such as wood, cotton, jute, crystals, and indigo. She encourages others to see fiber art in new and meaningful ways woven in with Mother Earth’s natural wonders.
