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.

Workshop

May 11 & 12: Experimental Papermaking

Make paper! We will be exploring abaca, a lightweight, high shrinkage, translucent material perfect for creating low relief and three-dimensional objects. Spend Saturday placing embedded wire, string, and reed between wet sheets of paper, and return the next day to find it magically transformed into dry, structural paper shapes for building. Further manipulate the dry sheets into forms ranging from dimensional sheets to baskets to lamps and lanterns. Experiment with glue, thread, wire, and other fasteners to create unique paper objects.
