Presentation: Artist’s Books, Installations, and The Art of Papercraft with Helen Hiebert

Helen Hiebert will talk about her journey on paper. She will show several unique artist’s books and installations, while describing the twists and turns in her entrepreneurial career. Helen will also discuss her newest how-to book, The Art of Papercraft.

Helen HiebertHelen Hiebert is a Colorado artist who constructs installations, sculptures, films, and artist’s 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 several how-to books about papermaking and paper crafts. 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, Step Into the Light, is a giant paper lantern at Anythink Wright Farms, a library in Denver. She holds an annual paper retreat in her Red Cliff studio every August.
