Ruth Holt trained in textile design at Central Saint Martin’s and the Royal College of Art.
She weaves using fine silk and wool yarns on a 24 shaft loom, designing and making cloth of nuanced colour and tactile qualities. Much of Ruth’s designing is inspired by the ever-changing landscapes of Suffolk and the seascapes of Orkney, by their intensity and subtlety of colour and the reflective spaces they hold.
As well as weaving one off pieces she has designed and made up a limited edition of scarves for a City of London Livery Company. More recent work includes weaving to commission for a series of vestments for Norwich Cathedral.
Please contact Ruth by email or text if you would like to discuss commissions.
