Welcome. I’m Ruth Singer, an artist & maker exploring personal and collective narratives through textiles. I create for exhibitions, commissions and projects. I also write books, support other creatives through mentoring and consultancy / research work and I love generating my own projects, artist residencies and making things happen.
All of my work, across all of these different aspects is centred around making with meaning. I am fascinated by the hidden stories in all our lives and in historic objects and places. My work grows from research and contemplation and from collaborating with others.
At the moment, I am working on
Textiles in Lockdown research for Gawthorpe Textiles Collection. This will be published in October as an ebook and podcast.
You can explore deeper into my work by joining my membership group on Patreon and receive a monthly digital magazine exploring aspects of my practice.
