Welcome to my new website, ruthwheeler.co.uk!
After nearly twenty years of working as a freelance sculptor and community artist in Surrey under the Sculpt It umbrella and more recently teaching yoga I have finally listened to advice and taken the plunge and I will be putting everything that I do under one website!!
This is a big step for me to share everything in one place so you can see the whole me and what I love and what I share and offer to you.
Art is my life – I particularly enjoy working with the natural shapes and grains of wood, I create art collections that I exhibit in craft fairs, galleries and shops as well. I take wood sculpting into schools and colleges and also day centres.
I instigate art projects, events and workshops as well as project coordinate community art projects.
My job is forever changing and evolving, working with different communities and in different environments, which is a joy and keeps me on my toes.
My other passion is Yoga and three years ago I undertook my yoga teacher training in 200 TT with Seasonal Yoga over one year and then completed a week of training with Teen Yoga with Charlotte Martinus.
I run weekly yoga classes for young people and adults locally and also run specific workshops and retreats.
Yoga helps me to feel grounded and restored after the manual work of wood sculpting. It helps me to stop for a while to clear my mind, to breathe, keep flexible and find peace in a crazy busy life!
Yoga and Creativity – helps me to feel like me and brings me so much happiness. I hope that I can share my experiences and skills that I have learnt and continue to do so with you whether it’s on the art or yoga path.
