Sat 14 Nov 2015 - Sun 10 Jan 2016
Narrative Threads is a solo exhibition of work by Ruth Singer exploring how we respond to and interact with textiles in our daily lives. Singer's work looks at our physical and emotional engagement with cloth and explores tactility, memory and personal stories.
Singer received Arts Council funding to support her research, development and making time as well as a period of residency at The National Centre for Craft & Design.
The exhibition, which spans our 4th floor, includes existing and new work as well as collaborative pieces created with visitors during the residency days. Site specific work 'Many Hands' & 'Beauty of Stains' which were created at NCCD this year will also be on display.
In addition to this exhibition, the Artist and NCCD have programmed a series of public learning events, including:
30 Sep & 28 Oct 2015
Sat 5 - 6 Dec 2015
Monthly sessions for community groups and individuals. Please contact NCCD for more information booking.

Kathryn is an artist and a visual story-teller. From porcelain plants to shoes made of sugar, her work explores places, their people and wildlife. Currently focusing on plants and lichens found growing in semi-wild places, "Found in the Fields" is a series of works inspired by poet John Clare. Kathryn's collections of found materials, photographs and intricate porcelain sculptures tell of plants' fascinating structures, textures and forms.
