We were absolutely delighted to welcome textile artist Ruth Singer to Llanidloes yesterday. Ruth, winner of the Fine Art Masters at the Festival of Quilts 2016, was visiting us to do preparatory work for our Summer Exhibition at which she will be displaying some of her wonderful work and tutoring a three-day Summer School on Experimental Quilting Techniques.
Our trustees were on hand to bring the quilts out of the storeroom and then refold and replace them after Ruth had finished her research. Ruth photographed and made notes on the quilts and fragments and it was fascinating to work with her and listen to what she had to say about each one.
You can see what a long day it was by the number of boxes we got out in the picture below but from our point of view it was so rewarding to see our collection being used and appreciated by a leading textile artist. Thank you so much for coming Ruth. We’re so looking forward to seeing your work hanging in our gallery and to your Summer School in August.
