After a tour of the studio, we chose two colours each and Angie set us up on the looms. We went through the main rug weaving techniques such as plain weave and clasp weft to create different patterns.
A Day with Angie Parker Textiles
This January we travelled to Bristol to spend a day exploring different rug weaving techniques with Angie Parker. Angie Parker is an award winning weaver of rugs and exquisite, vibrant textiles derived from traditional Scandinavian rug weaving techniques. Her distinctive and intricate floor art and fabric creations are hand-woven using long established patterns, such as Krokbragd, which she combines with her instinctive and daring approach to colour.
