“In 1967 Ramson studied as a special student for a year in the Tapestry Department, Edinburgh College of Art… In 1973, Ramson returned to Edinburgh to work as a weaver at the Dovecot Tapestry Studio, learning the precise methods which she described as “solidly based in a traditional discipline.” – Meredith Hinchliffe, Curator. “Through her work as artist, teacher and consultant to the ATW, Belinda Ramson played a crucial role in shaping the vibrant and distinctive woven tapestry movement that emerged so surprisingly and with such authority in Australia in the 1970s.” -Kay Lawrence, Head of the South Australian School of Art.
