Ruth Packham's Profile
I am an artist who loves all things textile.
I live on the West coast of Wales,UK.
I have been making screen printed textiles for a long time now, mainly using paper stencils to create the prints....a very low tech process!
I work from my studio behind my house which is also just big enough to run small classes in ' How to screen print' which I do weekly.
As well as handmade items, I create 'art on fabric' which I then make into box canvasses, these are generally very colourful and bold.
In recent years I have become a felt artist. I love using the wool fibres to draw and I use my love of colour and pattern to then create felt wall art and felt bowls and vases.
I use the wet felting technique which involves layering the wool fibres, then wetting them and rolling them over and over until they are felted...
