Kelly Marshall presents “Weaving by Design”


Weaving by Design – A broad spectrum talk on design, rep weave, and the development of a weaving business.


Bio: Kelly Marshall’s textiles are inspired by traditions, from historic patterns to modern abstractions.  Color is examined in the detailed blending of the threads, while undulating texture creates visual shadows and tactile pleasure.  Created for functional use, Marshall’s textiles bring beauty to commercial and residential settings and add celebration to everyday living.  She has a BS degree in Applied-Design Textiles from the University of MN and studied design and weaving structure for one year in Forsa, Sweden.  She founded the Minneapolis based company Custom Woven Interiors in 1992 and in 2012 self published “Custom Woven Interiors, Bringing Color and Design home with Rep weave”.
