ABOUT THE ARTIST
Heather Ruthig, a graduate of the University of Guelph fine art program, has been creating innovative artworks ranging from photography, painting and sculpture for nearly 20 years. During that time she has been retained by the Stratford Festival as a props builder where she has crafted elaborate masks, sculpture and set elements that help bring to life the visual majesty this world renowned repertory theatre is famous for. Heather is happy to return to Off the Wall to once again teach Mask Making.
