Helen is passionate about pottery and started as an assistant teacher at Canberra Potters in 2020.
Pottery has been Helen’s passion for about 20 years. In 2005 she completed a Diploma of Ceramics at the ANU, then continued her study by completing multiple ceramic courses at TAFE up to the end of 2010.
Upon the closure of the ceramics TAFE courses in Goulburn, she decided to build a studio at her home. She now runs her small business “Woodbine Cottage Pottery” (named after her small 1880s cottage) through which she teaches and makes thrown functional ware with a variety of coloured glazes.
