May Program - Helen Hiebert

The Secret Life of Paper

Helen Hiebert is a Colorado artist who constructs installations, sculptures, films and artist books using handmade paper, thread, and light. She teaches and lectures about papermaking and lamp-making and exhibits her work internationally. She is author of the books Papermaking with Plants, The Papermaker's Companion, Paper Illuminated, Playing With Paper, and Playing With Pop-Ups. Helen has an extensive network of paper colleagues around the world and her interest in how things are made (from paper) keeps her up-to-date on current paper trends, which she writes about in her weekly blog post called The Sunday Paper. Helen’s most recent installation, The Wish, is a giant dandelion sculpture at Anythink Huron Street Library in Thornton. She holds an annual paper retreat in her Red Cliff studio each September.
