Yarn Art by Helen
Move away from the hats and scarves!! Helen uses yarn in a new (some might say twisted) way, to produce works that are fun and entertaining. After making armatures from various items and papier-mâché, she covers and decorates them with yarn-work. Yarn-bombing has also featured in her repertoire over the past few years, in her home town of Chippenham. She is drawn to texture and shapes — faces, structures, animals (real and imagined) and hopes to bring a smile to the faces of those who see her art.
