"Line’s work invokes the physical and emotional landscape of her childhood, informed by artisanal processes."
Line Nilsen is an experienced designer, textile artist and hand weaver based in the UK. She creates contemporary hand-woven pieces that are subtle and sophisticated with strong ties to traditional textiles, using her craft to recreate the emotions and aesthetics of her native north.
Line is fascinated with artisanal processes and extremely dedicated to the art - a perfectionist at work, using techniques that require patience and precision. She hand dyes and paints her warp yarn before weaving to achieve fluidity in colour. She achieves movement by combining materials with varied texture and properties.
