About Helen 

"I started learning weaving many years ago at a craft cottage doing tapestry weaving between two sticks .After  that I decided to learn more about the craft and enrolled in the Strathfield School of Textiles where I learned loom weaving, spinning dying etc. I was there for a few years and did many more courses there as I was so enthusiastic about weaving. I did many workshops in Mittagong and Geelong over the years and enjoyed every minute of it.

My grandfather had a weaving factory in Amsterdam before I was born and I must have inherited his love for the craft.

I love dying silk and other fibres and each scarf turns out differently. The possibilities are endless."
