In the Studio:
This wasn’t a very interesting week (visually) in the studio. I packed and shipped out the supply kits for Paper Weaving, which begins next week and started editing the videos and writing the how-to guides. Here’s the Green Bridge that I drive under when I take the back way into and out of Red Cliff (where my studio is). This was an atypical no sun day!
Papery Tidbits:
  • Want to visit me in Red Cliff and learn about hand papermaking techniques? The annual Red Cliff Paper Retreat is open for registration and this year’s theme is illuminated paper. This is the only event I hold in my Colorado studio. Join us Sept 7-9 and/or Sept 11-13.
  • It isn’t too late to sign up for Paper Weaving. Join a group of paper lovers from around the world as you weave your paper stash into works of art! Class begins this coming Wednesday!
  • Did you see this tutorial I wrote on how to make a Vellum Paper Ring a few weeks ago?
  • I’m building up a paper library! Here’s the latest addition: Best Papermaking Techniques Books.


Book artists! Abecedarian Gallery is looking for works for a traveling exhibition of book, wall and sculptural works that use threads as a primary element to present a narrative. The deadline for submissions is March 5.

This is a mesmerizing installation! Diffusion Choir is a kinetic sculpture that uses 400 folding elements to reveal the movements of an invisible flock of birds. Its movements are always changing, driven by custom software running a flocking algorithm. The sculpture hangs in the atrium of 650 East Kendall Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and was commissioned by BioMed Realty.

I enjoyed Todd Moe’s radio interview on North Country Public Radio featuring paper artist Velma Bolyard… it is an interesting experience listening to (but not seeing) paper being made. And I love Velma’s thought … “it’s like you are reaching from your hands and heart right into the earth.”

Mmmmm. the largest known early map of the world, within the pages of a book! The 60 sheet manuscript world map made in 1587 by Urbano Monte has been acquired by the David Rumsey Map Center at Stanford Libraries, which scanned the sheets, then digitally stitched them together.

This is a lovely slideshow of Japanese wrapping techniques.

  1. Helen,
    Your winter scenery is probably gorgeous on a sunny day but I prefer my palm trees at the moment. It feels too cold and damp!
    Love the cards!
