Tutor: ANGIE PARKER
COURSE 1: Friday 17 to Sunday 19 November 2023
Under the guidance of Krokbragd addict Angie Parker, you will learn to warp up and weave this weft-faced Scandinavian technique. Once you have the hang of the basics – exploring popular Krokbragd and double Krokbragd patterns, you will be encouraged to find your own style through play and experimentation; learn how to create your own contemporary structures and grow in confidence with your use of colour and texture.
There will be an opportunity to try weaving at different sets and focus on ways to weave durable samples for floor coverings, wall-hangings and niche upholstery projects before scaling projects up to a floor loom after the course should you wish to.
Angie Parker established her business creating distinctive and intricate rugs and textile art in 2014. She specialises in handweaving using long established techniques such as Krokbragd. After being taught rug weaving by the late Susan Foster at art college in the 1990s, she pursued a career in costume for a number of years whilst continuing to weave on small scale collections. She combines her weaving with an instinctive and daring approach to colour and it’s the creative process of importing a contemporary element to the time-honoured techniques of weaving and the responses from the viewer which most excite her.
