The 2023 inaugural art sale will be at the Bayside Sea Scouts this October! To experience our collected work as you would see in our studios come and visit us Saturday 28th – Sunday 29th between 10am & 4pm!

Pairing Exhibition now available online, visit in person from Tuesday 4th May 2021

My latest Exhibition, Pairings, is now available online.

This Exhibition is about placing work from my archive in dialogue with a series of new additions, following a loose theme, “ Spots.”
Pairings is the inaugural show in the new Annexe Gallery and also the first for the new concept of using a Gallery space.
The artwork will be on display from Tuesday 4th May to Saturday 29th May 2021 in the Annexe Gallery, 611 Wynnum Road, Morningside.
One of the new innovations is to enable a buyer to take the picture home on purchase. (I would be happy to end the month with blank walls)!

Online exhibition now open, prints available!

Tea cosy by Helen McIntosh

I was fascinated by the knitted tea cosies I found in second-hand shops because they’re diverse, original, made by people being creative who aren’t worried about status or artistic value. They are genuine hand-craft.

I have created cloth dolls instead of plastic or Barbie dolls etc, and use my own ideas for tea cosies. Being me, I can’t help going “over the top” where “more” is better, and better still 🙂

I see them as a celebration of women and craft, and who doesn’t love a cup of tea?





Upcycled Artworks

I create upcycled artworks by repurposing older materials and whatever is to hand in my Workshop.
