Many thanks to Ruth Singer for such an interesting talk about her journey through her work and especially how she came upon the subject of Criminal Quilts. It really is a look into a slice of Victorian life the history books don’t cover. Ruth spent many years researching the unfortunate lives of some of the impoverished women who passed through Stafford Prison. The work she has created has bought colour and life to their black and white images to tell some of their story.
If you missed the talk, have a look at the Ruth’s website https://ruthsinger.com/criminalquilts/
There is a free video to watch plus a lot of information about her work, books and exhibition.
