An engaging speaker, keeping our interest all the time. When going to university she had to chose between art and science and so she trained as a scientist. When magnifying her work she often saw textile opportunities ....she showed us the plaque on teeth, magnified and translated into stitch. On her blog she has a folder of science subjects in textiles. She had a love of the cups and rings engraved into the stones in the wilds of Northumbria and the prehistoric goddess shape all of which she translated into textiles. Her dissertation has been serialised on... historyofembroidery.blogspot Look up her blog to see more of her work....www.textilegoddess.blogspot.com web site www.helencowans.co.uk where you can see close ups of her work and her gowns.
