Rezia Wahid is a textile artist, educator and curator who specialises in hand weaving.

Rezia was appointed an MBE for her weaving and contributions to Arts in London in 2005. Rezia produces signature works of gossamer-light woven cloths that seek to evoke ‘air’, ‘peace’ and ‘tranquillity’. Her workshops and performances are tailored to engage a wide range of audiences and designed to be environmentally friendly as well as seeking to build bridges to connect and impact. Her work has been described by Denis May  as “like an anthology of poetry…”

Children under 10 should have an accompanying adult. This is a family event and all ages welcome.

We’re very pleased to be able to offer our local families a PlayPack to support this session that you’ll receive through the post. Keep your eye out!
