Helen Hiebert

I’m Helen Hiebert, and I construct installations, sculptures, films, artists’ books and works in paper using handmade paper as my primary medium. I teach, lecture and exhibit my work internationally and online, and I am the author of several how-to books about papermaking and papercrafts. I have an extensive network of paper colleagues around the world and my interest in how things are made (from paper) keeps me up-to-date on current paper trends, which I write about in my weekly blog called The Sunday Paper. I also host interview papermakers and paper artists on my podcast Paper Talk, and I hold an annual paper retreat and papermaking master classes in my Red Cliff, Colorado studio each September.
