Jump straight into the fun part of weaving on a multi-shaft table loom under the guidance of weaver and textile designer Angie Parker. With access to a wide range of Angie’s colourful yarns, you can let your creativity run wild whilst learning different weave structures including plain weave and twill. The looms will be threaded up in preparation for this workshop and the session can be adapted to meet the requirements of each participant. You can get in touch before the
workshop to request specific colours and where possible Angie will find a shade that matches from her extensive yarn supply. Once each participant has finished weaving their panel, Angie transforms the woven sample into a simple cushion for you to take home.

scale collections. During this time she developed the original style for which she has become known since setting up her business. Her weaving has 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 excites her.
A year spent living in India and more recently, the dynamic graffiti and houses in her Bristol neighbourhood, have influenced the fabulously joyful palette which is intrinsic
