About Ruth Gilbert

I am a weaver.  I make cloth and smaller items and also research and make replicas of archaeological finds.

Further Info

Specialised in
I began as a spinner, and the nature of the yarn used is fundamental to the cloth I make.  As well as forty years' practical work in weaving and spinning I have an MPhil in textile history.  I am interested in the learning and technical development of embodied skills and use both aspects of my practice to advantage in reconstructing fabrics from archaeological finds.  In my own work I play with colour a lot, usually in simple weaves.
