Helen Pailing
VARC Artist in Residence: 2013 - 2014
12 months
An engagement with materials is central to Helen’s practice which involves the transformation of everyday materials into non-monumental objects, interventions and installations. She often employs a craft based methodology to create structure and studied BA Hons Embroidery before completing MA Designer Maker.

Helen’s interest in using waste materials has led her to undertake a programme of research "Recrafting waste glass from the National Glass Centre:  A collaboration between makers and matter" at the University of Sunderland. She was the 2013/14 Artist in Residence with VARC.
