The William Morris Gallery hosts a workshop and demonstration 'An introduction to weaving with artist Rezie Wahid MBE', participants create their own woven sample, and on Sunday 7 May, Wahid demonstrates her technique on a large handmade weaving frame.

William Morris was one of the outstanding members of the Arts and Crafts movement and his approach to making is still an inspiration to many craftspeople today. Wahid uses traditional weaving techniques to create delicate, almost weightless, hand-woven textiles drawing on influences from nature, Islamic art and architecture.
