About Ruth Singer

Having started her professional life in museums, Ruth Singer is now a textile artist who finds herself drawn to creating work with a narrative, often based around objects, history, people and places. She works mainly with textile, often old cloth or simple natural materials, and favours traditional hand techniques of appliqué, quilting and embroidery, used in contemporary ways. She often works collaboratively with other artists and makers as well as installations in response to historical materials in archives and museums.

Ruth is showing her exhibtion Emotional Repair in the textile galleries at Gawthorpe Hall from 28 March to 24 June 2018.
