Ruth de Vos is a textile artist and Illustrator whose incredible patchwork artworks have captured our attention and imagination. She seamlessly combines her experience as an Illustrator with traditional patchwork methods to create artworks that are a riot of colour and form. Ruth describes her work as textile paintings which are made from hundreds of small pieces of hand dyed fabric.
Amitie will be hosting Ruth for a 2 day workshop exploring the techniques she uses in her artworks.
We love having Jen teach at her home store. She’s a champion of the practise of hand quilting and has taken ‘scrappy’ and made it an artform.
