Maker of the Month
Astrid Weigel is a textile designer/maker producing a collection of home decorative accessories and wall art from her Angus studio.
Her fabrics are created using a mixture of techniques comprising screen printing, hand cut stencils, free-hand painting and occasionally embellished with stitching to add more colour and textural interest.
Her inspiration comes predominately from nature and everyday life. Recently, her gaze has turned indoors to more domestic subjects; house plants, observations from her window and cherished items that have been part of her daily life for a number of years.
These themes have been combined with geometric shapes and a variety of textures to form stylised, sometimes semi abstract images.
