Helen Foot

Category: Textile
Location: Bircher, Leominster, Herefordshire
Description: Helen’s playful style has been described as ‘Rebellious Nostalgia’. With a strong sense of colour and a passion for keeping traditional skills alive Helen creates fabrics in harmony with the loom.  From her design studio in rural Herefordshire, Helen handweaves fabric for her growing collections of scarves. Inspiration is drawn from traditional handcrafts such as patchwork and cross-stitch which she merges with contemporary geometric patterns and bold colour combinations.
Helen trained at the Royal College of Art and prior to that at Winchester School of Art.  Her portfolio career combines being a visiting lecturer, commission weaving, collaborations and curating.  Notable achievements include; designing fashion fabrics for Paul Smith and Alexander McQueen, in 2011 being selected by the Crafts Council for their Hothouse program which supports emerging designer makers and meeting HRH The Prince of Wales with the Cambrian Mountains Wool Challenge.
