Artist Bio:

Helen Rau has been weaving since 1995. Her favorite process of weaving is warping, and she loves creating kitchen towels, rag rugs, and scarves. Initially working on a floor loom, she transitioned to Rigid Heddle to save on space. Helen lives part-time in Portland, Oregon, and her other passions are spinning cotton, and spending time in her kitchen!
