August 10-11, 2013
Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am – 4:00pm
Cost: $215, Materials $25 (to be paid the first day of the workshop)

In this class, we will investigate papermaking, paper folding, model making and other techniques to create a sampling of small sculptural forms that expand and collapse, open and close, fold and unfold. These techniques will be utilized to make inflatable paper balls, book structures, lamps, lanterns and other sculptural adaptations.

Helen Hiebert is the author of four how-to books about paper: Playing With Paper, Papermaking with Plants, The Papermaker’s Companion, and Paper Illuminated. Helen has appeared on Sesame Street, has produced of two films, and writes a weekly blog about all things paper. She teaches, lectures and exhibits her work internationally, often involving the community in her installation projects such as her Mother Tree Project. Her next installation, The Wish, involves dandelions… stay tuned! Helen is the vice president of the International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artists and a regular contributor to Hand Papermaking Newsletter. She lives and works near Vail, Colorado.
