The desire to create functional, attractive and unique handwoven items is what make weaving so pleasurable for me. The rhythmic motion of throwing the shuttle, pounding the beater and watching patterns and colors emerge before my eyes bring joy to my day. Scarves made of tencel, towels made of cotton/linen and rugs made of wool are a few of the items you will find at my studio on the shores of Lake Superior.
To satisfy my desire for creativity while spending the winters in the Southwest I’ve recently started silversmithing. Jewelry made from sterling silver will also be available during the Herbster Studio Art Tour.
