Following publication of Mark Making Through the Seasons in Summer 2019 Helen is now working on some new ideas for books

Mark Making Through the Seasons was centred around ten key seasonal phases, a broad and unusual book it introduces a range of sources of creative and visual inspiration explored through a wide range of paper and fabric based techniques. The book is illustrated throughout with original photographs of each seasonal phase, photographs of working textile samples and completed textile artworks. The book aims to encourage the reader to explore and be inspired by the passing seasons in their own locality.

Although written long before any of us had heard of Covid 19, this book is especially relevant when we are at home and around locally so much. There is so much to be inspired by very close to home.
