Carl Stewart (he/him) is a weaver and teacher living and working in Ottawa, Ontario Canada.

For more than 30 years Stewart has employed traditional hand-weaving techniques to explore the fundamental role textiles play in the crafting of queer culture and identity. As a cis-gender queer man practicing within a perceived “feminine” domain, his work challenges heteronormative and gendered structures of power by celebrating, memorializing, documenting and commemorating the intimate, the fabulous, the egregious and the tragic.
