My name is Ruchama Hoed

& I weave philosophical and spiritual threads of thought, intercultural experiences and personal encounters together as an artistic alignment of soul and matter in form.

Color, light and rhythm are my allies to distill and materialise art as a way of paying homage to life’s essential complexity and beauty.

Weaving is my meditative portal into other dimensions expressed to celebrate my desire and fascination for life’s multi-facetted richness.

In 2008 I graduated from Goldsmiths College’s visual art department in London after having studied Humanistic studies, hat-making and modern dance, all of which combined give me a rich foundation to develop my artistic practice upon.

In 2014 my Golden Thread lead me to study the ancient craft of weaving with inspiring weaving-elders in Italy, the Netherlands, Friesland, Germany & UK. 

Nowadays I am grateful to be working in my atelier in the hills of Tuscany as well as spending time  on various  projects & collaborations
in my studio in the heart of Amsterdam.

All for Love!
