Helen Foot Design

Description: 

With a strong sense of colour and a passion for keeping traditional skills alive, Helen’s work is all about juxtaposing nostalgic handicrafts with rebellious contemporary aesthetics. When designing her scarves, she strives to create playful yet timeless pieces which you will love to wear year after year.

From designing concepts to finishing of the products, it’s all done by hand and with a careful eye. Every thread is counted, wound onto the loom, passed through a heddle, threaded through a reed and tied onto a beam before the weaving can even start. Once the cloth is woven it will need checking, braiding, washing, pressing and dividing. The finishing touch is sewing a label on. It’s a meticulous process but that’s what makes a handwoven scarf so special.

2019 sees the launch of new products from Helen, including apparel, homeware and accessories.

You will be able to see demonstrations on Helen's 24 shaft floor loom throughout the week and have a go yourself on a small table loom. Find out about Helen's range of workshops when you visit.
