Featured Artist : Kathy Barlow

Artist Bio / Statement

Hello, I am Textile Designer and artisan pillow maker Kathy Barlow of HomeWorkshop. I believe that COLOR brings joy to our lives, and I hope to embolden my clients to confidently use more color in their homes.

My designs are inspired by my passion for, and my photographs of architecture and nature. Once I find an interesting motif or theme in my photos, I hand-sketch it, then adjust it for best graphic impact. I then carry the motif throughout a collection of richly colored pillows and other home textiles, while mixing up the textures and my textile art methods.

My work includes hand silk screened and block printed designs, hand embossed elements and original patterned fabrics. I also adore the place where Tech meets Textile and I can be found laser cutting fabrics at my local maker space, or knitting my latest motif into a repeating graphic pattern on my hand-manipulated knitting machine.

Splitting my time between the San Francisco Bay Area and Lake Tahoe, I am lucky to be a Dharma 'neighbor'! I love to pop into the shop, or to call for friendly and helpful advice. I use Dharma's Speedball & Versatex screen printing and block printing inks and tools, as well as Dharma's lovely PFD linen/cotton blend base fabric.

I teach textile art workshops at Studio 333 in Sausalito, CA.

About Tiered Discount Levels

You can combine cotton and rayon clothing & accessories to get the greatest discounts. Your discount is figured on the total number of cotton and rayon items we ship, not how many of each type, style or size. Mix and match them to get the best discount.

Example; adding 4 each of 3 different T-shirts in size Large should give you the 12+ price on all 12 shirts.

Some products may be excluded from discounts, and / or may discount only with themselves. If you have any questions at all please contact us toll free at 800-542-5227 (no buttons, just humans).
