For this workshop you will be asked to bring along images to work from, these could be a garden shed, a lighthouse, a pet or a musical instrument. The workshop will begin by doing a line drawing of your chosen image, which can then be used as the template for the wire-work. Helaina will show simple wire-working techniques and provide all tools and various gauges of wire. The wire drawings will be mounted on white foam board which can be framed afterwards.

Helaina started her journey studying a BA in Design Crafts at Hereford College of Art and Design. She creates 2D and 3D wirework pieces for galleries, shops and personal commission, in the UK and internationally. Her work is currently on display here at the Bluecoat Display Centre.
