Curator Profile: Helen Foot

Helen Foot is predominantly a textile design but since graduating last year from The Royal College of Art and moving back to her home town, Shrewsbury, she has been involved in the curation of a couple of local exhibitions.  She co-curated MATERIAL, an exhibition of contemporary textiles, in June with printed textile designer, Sophie Copage and was also involved in the selection of work for the Shrewsbury Coffeehouse's Photography Month in August.

Helen runs her design business alongside being an Associate Lecturer at Chelsea College of Art and Design and she is currently part of the Crafts Council UKs HOTHOUSE 2011 scheme for emerging makers.  She has previously done freelance designing for Alexander McQueen and Paul Smith, and was the Studio Manager for Wallace Sewell in London before doing her MA. She is currently concentrating on designing her own product line and will be launching her first collection of scarves next month.

Helen has a studio in the heart of Shrewsbury which she shares with her brother, Richard Foot, who is a photographer.  The studio is also currently hosting Osian Jones, architect, and Matt Sewell, illustrator.
