Helaina has been working with wire for the past 15 years, creating intricate and delicate 3D drawings. With subjects including architecture, clocks and tea cups. She is experienced in running workshops for children and adults, always specialising in wire-working techniques.

Helaina started her journey studying a BA in Design Crafts at Hereford College of Art and Design. Tea became an obsession there and she particularly loved the elegance of Edwardian Architecture. It was here, where her love of tea and the Edwardian way of life connected, this became the main feature in her work.

Helaina creates 2d and 3d wirework pieces for galleries, shops and personal commission, in the UK and internationally
