The Sunday Paper #446
February 5, 2023
The Red Cliff Paper Retreat is one of my longest running programs (I’ve lost count, but I think this is year 8) and one of the few events I host in my studio. We’re gathering again for a week of late summer paper fun (August 21-25) and this year the theme is Paper Panels. Come explore a variety of papers that can be made by hand, cut, folded, stitched and assembled in a variety of ways to create books, wall hangings, sculpture, lighting and more. Explore these ideas as you create unique paper objects with a dozen like-minded creatives.

Remember telephones with cords and phone books? Bernie Kaminski’s nostalgic papier-mâché sculptures are out of this world.
Paper flowers seem to be all the rage these days, but I haven’t seen anything quite like these. Arnold Drake turns paper napkins into beautiful flowers and brings joy to people in coffee shops around Portland as they watch him make his art.
This is a fascinating episode about a variety of uses of cardboard in Japan on NHK World Japan.
