Big in Japan!...

In November 2016, Helaina was super excited to go to Tokyo!  The stylish store IENA asked the wirework wonder to run workshops in their stunning environment, to run alongside a display of her work.  It was an amazing trip... images can be seen on Helaina's instagram and twitter pages.

COMMISSIONS welcomed...


The artist is currently working on quite a few commissions, an afternoon tea scene, the Albert Bridge, a birthday present...  So do you know you can commission Helaina? - maybe a favourite building (your house or the church you got married in,) or perhaps you like something in the gallery but would like it bigger or smaller... Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss commissioning your own special wirework piece.
