About Ruth Woods
Ruth has drawn her inspiration from many sources and has learnt the skills from travelling and meeting women who have shared their knowledge. After visiting South East Asia, spending time on a floating village working with the water hyacinth plant, living in Arnhem Land, she has bought together various styles and developed her own designs and methods and is now sharing her knowledge.
She works with plant fibers, recycled fabrics, wool and even paper. She encourages the participants of her workshops to experiment using many materials exploring shape and form. Basket making is an ancient craft throughout the world and Ruth has loved exploring this craft for several years. Although she doesn’t call herself an expert she loves to share what she has learnt and developed.
