Patti Barker Bio:
Patti Barker is an award-winning felt wear designer, teacher and author. She earned a BA degree in Studio Art with a concentration in fiber from Western Washington University. All of her designs are produced with felted seams (no sewing). The fabric and garment are created simultaneously, using wet felting techniques. What makes her work unique is that she dyes most all of the elements in her work, and spins complimentary art yarns to use as embellishment. Patti lives in the San Juan Islands with her husband Rex, their dog Buddy and a parrot, Baby Huey. To see more of her work, visit pattibarker.com
"From the very beginning of my nuno felt experience, the process of transforming wisps of wool and silk into felted cloth with a little soapy water, has struck me as magical. It's that magical process, with its playful nature and subtle shifts, that leads to experimentation. My designs are come from many hours of saying "what happens if..." As a result, they express fun and whimsy, yet are functional. If a person feels a bit more playful or beautiful while adorned with my work, then I have succeeded."
All of Patti's designs are produced with felted seams (no sewing). The fabric and the garment are created simultaneously, using wet felting techniques. What makes them unique is her hand-dying of elements used. She also hand-spins her embellishing art yarns and totally enjoys the playfulness they bring to the process.
