Line Nilsen is a Norwegian designer, textile artist and hand weaver based in the UK. Her practice centres around craft, design and process, exploring material and colour to create contemporary work. Line's woven art is an emotional response to the arctic landscape where she grew up, where the extreme absence and presence of light throughout the seasons have strong influence on mind and body.
After completing a tailoring apprenticeship in 2006, Line left Norway to study Textiles at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, graduating with a 1st in 2009. This was where she discovered her love for weaving. Line went on to further her skills, gaining industry knowledge working for renowned textile companies with a worldwide customer base. Since 2016 she has been creating hand woven one of a kind textile art, doing bespoke commission weavings, and working as a design consultant / collaborator from her Nottingham studio.
