Obviously all my summer talks and workshops have been postponed or cancelled this year. I am in discussions about September onwards which are still listed below.

I am happy to give talks for groups via Zoom on my Criminal Quilts project or my practice in general, or on a topic of mutual interest. I have a pro account and have been running events on Zoom since March so it should all run smoothly. I charge £100 for group talks by zoom. I am happy to discuss online workshops for groups too.

I am still taking in-person bookings for 2021 and we will see what is possible. These start at £150 depending on distance from Leicester. Please use the contact for below to enquire.

In the Shadows: experimenting with transparent fabrics
Transparent fabrics, combined with careful stitch and cutting can be used to create beautiful, dedicate and detailed textile pieces. Ruth loves using sheer fabrics like silk organza and cotton organdie and combining them with traditional and modern techniques including reverse appliqué, shadow embroidery and corded quilting. In this two day workshop, you will have the chance to try lots of different techniques and to explore Ruth’s inspirational work and her collection of delicate historical textiles.
Over two days you will learn about the different fabrics (all provided) and how to best combine design and technique to create a series of samples showcasing textiles and transparency.
£190 materials and 2 course lunch included
