Instructor Bio: Angie Parker hand weaves distinctive and intricate rugs and textile art, and specializes in long established techniques, such as Krokbragd.

After being taught rug weaving 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. During this time, she developed the original style for which she has become known since setting up her business.

She combines her weaving with an instinctive and daring approach to color, and it’s the creative process of importing a contemporary element to the time honored techniques of weaving and the responses from the viewer which most excite her.

A year spent living in India and more recently, the dynamic graffiti and houses in her Bristol neighborhood, 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 in her Bristol, UK studio. Some of her designs are then produced in small batches through various partnerships.
