About Ruth Singer

This year I celebrate 15 years of creative practice. In 2005 I was a museum learning officer, organising artist-led events in a fabulous museum. I loved my job but I loved making even more, and over the last decade and a half I have been working hard to develop my own career as an artist-maker. I’ve written four books, I’ve taught thousands of people and I’ve exhibited my work across the UK including 5 solo exhibitions. I never expected so much variety in my working life. These days my time is roughly half studio practice the other half a mixture of consultancy, mentoring and sharing through publications, talks and workshops. I make work for exhibitions, commissions and public engagement projects and have developed a lovely, friendly community of textile-lovers across the world. I would like to share more of what I do with you, through this Patreon community.


My tiny, cosy home studio, surrounded by boxes and cabinets full of textiles and treasures.

By joining my Patreon community you will get to see behind the scenes of my studio practice and my creative life. I’ll be sharing what I am making and the stories behind it, my motivations and inspirations as well as the struggles and challenges in making a living. I will share some of the work that goes into creating exhibitions, funding proposals and and public engagement projects. I’ve written several books (and have another in the pipeline) and love to share my writing about my own work, my practice, other artists and anything else which inspires and delights me. Patreon will give me a place to share my writing about my work in its widest sense, for you to get a real feeling of what it’s like to work like I do. 


I’ve set up two tiers of supporters to help me keep working and creating. Both Cotton & Wool will have access to stories about my studio & life including fortnightly posts where I will share a taster of my longer writing which will be in the Wool level. 

Top-level supporters, Wool, will receive a monthly illustrated letter (a bit like a magazine, but that may be beyond my graphic design skills!) with stories about the meaning and making of my work, some textile history essays, plenty about what inspires me and why, as well as lots of images of my work, textile tips and creative suggestions and maybe even the odd technique tutorial. It will be different every month, depending on what inspires me, and you can make suggestions for what you want to read about and see. There’s a sample illustrated letter below, talking about my Criminal Quilts project. Wool supporters will also have 5% discount on my online shop. 

I look forward to sharing my studio stories with you. I hope you will join me.
