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.
