Using a Photograph as Warp Inspiration - Barbara Herbster

Working with color and/or proportion, as inspiration, learn how to translate a picture into threads suggesting the mood, color or something offered by the printed source. There will also be discussion on what one could use for weft and setts. The interpretations will be done as warp wrappings. No material fees. Barbara always encourages a follow up to her workshop. With this in mind, as a follow up, participants could select a wrapping to make an actual piece of weaving to have an exhibit at the September meeting. A materials list will be given to participants as they sign up.

Barbara Herbster is from Manchester by the Sea, Massachusetts. She has been weaving for many years. In 1981 she became a Master Weaver. She has been sharing her weaving enthusiasm with others through exhibiting, teaching, and lecturing. Barbara has also had articles published in magazines such as “Handwoven”. Her most recent article can be found in the November/December 2013 issue of “Handwoven” on page 63. Her work emphasizes texture and color. Often inspiration comes from colors suggested by a painting, an experience, or a travel photograph.
