Ruby Berry is a Canberra-based textile artist who uses natural materials and traditional
processes to create sculptural textile works. She says this about her practice on an interview with Lip Magazine:
â€œMy practice is about exploring how I can bring traditional textile materials and processes into the contemporary art world. My making revolves around traditional techniques, hand spinning and weaving, and transforming these techniques into sculptural art forms. I have recently begun experimenting with sensory work, exploring sight, smell and touch to create interactive and engaging spaces.Â My recent work looks at how I could evoke a sense of protection and comfort through textile associations and sensory engagement.â€
