Instructor Bio

Patti's early fascination with fabrics and fashion came from her seamstress mother. She's come to realize fiber art is bound into her DNA. Her main focus has been creating wearable art with the use of silk and wool and soapy water. In addition to nuno felt, she uses hand-dying, needle felting, and bead embroidery to complement the tactile and visual narratives of each piece of wearable art. As a graduate of Western Washington University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art and a concentration in fibers, she began thinking about skins. Her study included simulated animal skins, human skin under a microscope, skins of mythical beings and hybrid humans.

An award-winning fiber artist, Patti Barker lives in a sprawling farm house in North Central Florida with her husband and two fine pups. Learn more about her at www.pattibarker.com.
