Hi, my name is Ruth
I have been a papercrafter and stamper for over 30 years.
I trained and worked as a teacher of children with very complex and profound disabilities. My first teaching job was near Leeds, I then moved to Surrey, and then in 2004 to Cornwall.
I opened The Craft Studio in 2010, with the aim of combining my love of crafts with a teaching element.
I love all things connected to nature, and I am also inspired by Art Nouveau, Arts and Crafts and the work of William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones in particular.
I have many favourite things but of these my favourite favourite are the colour purple and all shades lilac, violet, amethyst et al! Snowflakes, seahorses, dragonflies, hummingbirds, and fairies… a bit eclectic but all of which flutter and flitter! All of these will often be reflected in my stamping and craft projects.
My favourite crafty things to make are all types of mini books, albums, and journals…so do not be surprised to see these coming up fairly often in workshops!
