"Angie's cushion making workshop is fun, informative, relaxed and colourful. Angie is very friendly, does a simple explanation that gives enough instruction to get started and not too much to bamboozle, and is always on hand for advise and support with problems/shuttle winding/pattern ideas. Having a beautiful cushion at the end of such a short workshop feels like a lovely achievement. Highly recommend doing this workshop and any others
Angie starts up in future."

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

Angie Parker

Angie established her business creating distinctive and intricate rugs and textile art in 2014, and she specialises in hand-weaving using long established techniques, such as

After being taught rug weaving by the late Susan Foster at art college in the 1990’s, Angie pursued a career in costume for a number of years whilst continuing to weave on small
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
to her weaving. Working in reclaimed high quality rug wool and a variety of other yarns she meticulously
hand-weaves and finishes all the original pieces herself on a Glimakra Floor loom at BV Studios in Bristol. Some of her designs are then produced in small batches through
various partnerships.
