Helene Stracco

Helene Stracco

Helene Stracco began weaving at Castle Hill Arts Center in Truro on Cape Cod in the early ’70s.   Prior to that, she learned to spin and dye wool in Brewster from a dynamic young woman who wore fresh water pearls in her hair.  The first fleece she acquired was from Naushon Island off the coast of Falmouth and was purchased after the roundup and shearing of the wild sheep that live on the island.

She achieved the level of Master Weaver in 1992 after completing a four-year weaving program at Hill Institute in Florence, MA.

She is a member of the Arts Foundation, The Society of Cape Cod Craftsmen, Provincetown Art Association, The Weaving Network, and The Pioneer Valley Weavers’ Guild in Northampton, MA.

She participates in artisan fairs on the Cape.  Her weavings are for sale at Artisans in the Square, Hingham, MA, Cape Cod  Museum of Art Gift Shop, South Yarmouth, MA,
