One of my proud moments of last year was giving a lecture to the Art foundation students at Carmarthen Art School in November about Craft and Apprenticeships. 10 years since I was a student there myself!
Nice to be featured in Craft and Makers Magazine this month talking about my WCMT Travels to Mexico and Japan
This pair of boots were made as part of the Japan collection, using a hand painted kimono embroidered with golden flowers.
A little interview I did with Selvedge Magazine http://www.selvedge.org/blog/?p=24140
Ruth Emily Davey shoes will be showing at the Selvedge makers fair this sat in Highgate, London, come and see us!
Finally finished my WCMT report ‘Generations of Craft’ which you can find online here :
These are made from pure handwoven Japanese Nishimura in pure silk and gold thread due to be exhibited at #HandmadeinBritain, Chelsea in 2 weeks, for details see below.
Amazing to be part of the Art in Action show this year and special because it is the last one after 40 years. It was truly wonderful meeting Artists from all over the world and I got Best of the Best Award in the QEST tent!
