Helen Moon


Textile Artist

artist website

Starting with white silk, Helen uses various techniques such as hand painting, soy wax resist, gutta, shibori, immersion dyeing, rust and indigo to create colour and design.

Once the dyes are fixed by steaming, everything is washed and ironed. The fabric is then ready to be cut, stitched and embellished to create individual garments. Using these techniques Helen also makes fabric lengths, scarves, wall pieces and cards and has recently introduced a range of cotton and linen indigo-dyed clothing.

Helen teaches workshops in silk painting and nuno felting around Adelaide and the Hills. She joined the Collective in 2004.



There’s so much to look at, we suggest you come and browse. If you just can’t choose between the 2 or 3 (or more) items you simply have to have, why not take a moment to sit down and relax, and have lunch or coffee at one of the cafes just next to our gallery. And when you come back in, you’ll know exactly which work of art is right for you.

Come and find us in Gay's Arcade, inside Adelaide Arcade in Rundle Mall, Adeaide. We’d love to see you.
