From Design Junction 2018 comes a collaboration for Danish Disrupted. Angie Parker’s immediate response to the collection was of its potential for her weaving. A dramatic and unrestrained celebration of colour and a passion for her craft brings together this new work for Spotlight at Devon Guild of Craftsmen.
Angie uses a traditional Scandinavian weave in order to show these vivid colours. It takes three throws of the shuttle for every one of a conventional weave, which makes a luxurious and strong finish to the fabric.
Angie is an arts graduate specialising in rugs, with a passion and skill with colour. She was wanting a quality chair on which to show her weaving and I was looking for some special upholstery fabric. The collaboration works well despite Angie being based in Bristol and me in Aberdeen.
The colours for these pieces came from local graffiti in Bristol seen by Angie each day on her way to her studio.
