Astrid Weigel is a textile designer/maker producing a collection of home decorative accessories and wall art, all of which are designed and created from her studio in the North east of Scotland.
Her works are created using a mixture of techniques comprising screen printing, hand cut stencils, free-hand painting and are embellished with hand/machine stitching to add more colour and textural interest. Additionally, some items are digitally printed retaining still Astrid’s unique style.
Coming from a design background, her work aims to bridge the gap between functional design and craft based art. Sometimes her one-off wall art pieces will inspire a more commercial pattern design, sometimes it’s vice versa.
Astrid’s aim is to create beautiful hand made functional items.
