At Eachwhat Industries Studio, Bristol:

Feb 19 - Mar 26: WEAVING LIGHT INSTALLATION AND WOVEN POETRY WORKSHOP: Join Rezia Wahid MBE from 11:30-13:00 and/or 14:30-16:00 and weave your personal words or visual lines on a 2 metre square wooden frame using recycled materials to create a public art tapestry.  The activity is suitable for all ages, you don’t need to ‘know’ how to weave or write poetry.  Rezia will be launching her installation and give a guiding hand on the weaving frame. Free.




This book is overdue.

Rezia Wahid's technically dazzling work as a British-Bangladeshi contemporary weaver was recognized at an early stage of her career - the Alhambra Award for Art in 2004 and an MBE for Arts in 2005 was followed by solo shows. Now an award-winning group of poet-artists have come together to celebrate her transcendent woven art in this artist-book that will accompany three solo shows of her work in the UK in 2022.

The first of her solo shows will be in Bristol, Spring 2022. A prestigious solo show will follow in the summer at heritage site Whitchurch Silk Mill - the first artist of colour to exhibit there; and lastly a show to be arranged at William Morris Museum - a spiritual home of British craft.

We want this book to raise the profile of not merely an important artist-weaver but also the status of craft: that it is as modern and worthy of critical engagement as other art-forms. In Weaving Light, innovative poetics is in dialogue with contemporary craft, with texts and visual poetry woven between stunning photographs of her work in exhibition and choreographed shows.

Contributors include: multi-disciplinary artist cris cheek, Geraldine Clarkson (Monica's Overcoat of Flesh), Sasha Dugdale (Deformations), John Goodby (The Ars), Khaled Hakim (The Book of Naseeb), calligrapher Moustafa Hassan, visual artist Imogen Reid (Losing Track), Kelvin Corcoran (Facing West) &  Yasmine Seale (Aladdin: a New Translation).
