Australian made and one of the many beautifully hand painted pure silk scarves handcrafted by Helen Langley 160cm x 28cm. Each scarf begins with white silk, a separate design is hand drawn directly on to the silk in gutta then painted using liquid silk dyes applied with a brush. Special effects are created using a range of techniques. When completed the silks are steamed to fix the dyes.
Helen grew up among the gum trees, living near the 12 Apostles along the Great Ocean Road in southern Victoria. Helen was captivated by silk painting after doing a one day hobby course 25 years ago. Helen’s lifelong passion for natural history and a love of the Australian bush and coastlines are captured in the vibrant colours of these pure silk creations. Helen also enjoys teaching, enabling others to share the pleasures of painting on silk.
