Because there are many gourd artists who are unable to attend classes, she decided to write gourd instructional books that will teach her techniques and share tips of information she has learned.  These books are very detailed and have Illustrations and/or step-by-step photos with written instructions.

​Hellen has taught students from Holland, Belgium, France, New Zealand, Germany, and USA.  She travels to many states to teach at gourd festivals and retreats as well as teaches private lessons in her home.  Each student receives a booklet (if it's written) with step-by-step photos/illustrations and detail written instructions to take home with them just in case they forget what they learned.
