The Practical Creative

Contemporary Tapestry Artist Jo Barker on inspiration, developing ideas, and her idiosyncratic process

April 23, 2018

Jo produces absolutely stunning work that just sings with colour and movement, capturing a fascinating process that combines intuitive gestures, digital editing, and labour-intensive weaving.

In this episode we get stuck into her process and discuss:

  • sources of inspiration
  • generating and exploring ideas
  • working with visual stimuli
  • the importance of selection in order to keep moving forward

We also have a frank conversation about why she isn’t a business that I found refreshing and inspiring. There’s loads of fascinating insight in this episode, so tune your ears!
