Ross' practice creates hosting spaces that promote play, with a firm belief that creativity is an energy we must all feed. He looks to capture impulse and promote distinct perspectives through playful, collaborative methods.
Engaging communities through design and play, Ross works with typography, table tennis, colour, wood-work, pickling & fermenting, creative writing and mono-printing techniques.
Based in Sheffield Ross collaborates with groups and projects across the country, currently working with; Not A Sausage on food and ceremony based work. Assembly on environment and community projects.
