More About Barbara


Barbara’s weaving passion of more than twenty years is developing unique supplementary warp patterning effects. She is also captivated by the limitless possibilities and portability of ply-splitting.

Barbara was awarded the Master Certificate of Excellence in Handweaving from Handweavers Guild of America in 1990. She is an active member of Northwest Designer Craftsmen, has been a faculty member of the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts and the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, and has taught for guilds and conferences in the United States, England, and Canada. Her work has been exhibited internationally, and two of her pieces are the only examples of ply-splitting included in Lark Books' 500 Baskets. She is an enthusiastic educator and has had numerous articles published in Strands, Complex Weavers Journal, Handwoven, Weaver’s, and Shuttle, Spindle & Dyepot. In 2012 Barbara published Ply-Splitting from Drawdowns: Interpreting Weave Structures in Ply-Split Braiding.

Barbara’s home studio overlooks the Willamette Valley in Salem, Oregon.
