Patti Barker Fiber Art You Wear

Friday Harbor, Washington

Announcement    Early fascination with fabric and fashion came from my seamstress mother. You might say fiber art is bound into my DNA. My felting journey began with a study of skin. Skin as a protective covering, and as identifier. A study of animal skin, and human skin; leading to hybrids. All the while, intrigued with the way wearable art transforms its wearer.

Surface design inspiration rises from exploring rich color and texture combinations. Techniques include inclusions, felt Shibori and differential shrinkage to create rich, unique textures. Nuno felt, hand-dyeing, needle felting, bead embroidery...all compliment the tactile and visual narratives of each piece of my wearable art.

Patti Barker is an award-winning felt wear designer, and teacher. She earned a BA degree in studio art with a concentration in fiber at Western Washington University. Patti lives on San Juan Island, in Washington State with her husband, Rex, and a parrot named Baby Huey.
