Welcome to my new blog for Helen’s shed … currently an old fisherman’s shed at Felixstowe Ferry,  but soon to be my open studio.

Before I tell you more about that, please let me introduce myself.

My name is Helen Cassells and I live in the small hamlet of Felixstowe Ferry at the mouth of the River Deben in Suffolk. I first visited “The Ferry”, as it is known locally, in 1993 and instantaneously loved the feel of the place.  Since then I have stayed here many times and been made to feel welcome in this great little  community.  It wasn’t until  2011 that I had the chance to move here permanently, but now here I am and it is a special place of huge skies, changing weather and interesting characters, all at the whim of mother nature.
