In the Studio:
I’m a firm believer in good tools. I’ve added this 12″ x 18″ custom made mould & deckle from Chester Creek Press
to my inventory and took it for a test drive this week!
- Want to visit me and learn about hand papermaking techniques? The annual Red Cliff Paper Retreat is almost full. If you were thinking of grabbing a spot, now’s the time! This is the only event I hold in my Colorado studio. Join us Sept 7-9 and/or Sept 11-13, 2018.
- NYC Peeps: this looks like a fantastic panel discussion: Nature as Tool and Material at the Center for Book Arts this Thursday eve.
- The Byopia Press blog is a lovely book and paper arts blog. And my recent video tutorial was featured on their Friday Night Flicks (cool concept)!
This is so awesome! There was a Korean Crafts area at the recent olympic games in PyeongChang, South Korea where visitors could make their own origami flower. Denver is considering bidding for the next winter olympics, which would certainly spill over into Vail. Hmmmm….
Great headline: The Art Behind Barichara’s All-Female Artisanal Paper Making. This factory in Columbia employs 11 women, and the article details the papermaking process. I found myself wondering who buys the paper… tourists perhaps?

I am a novice when it comes to folding paper. These single sheet complex tesselations by Moscow-based paper artist Ekaterina Lukasheva
are mind blowing!

The exhibition FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures
continues at the Museum of Chinese in America in Manhattan through March 25. The paper sculptures made by Golden Venture passengers between 1993 and 1997, while they waited for their fate to be decided at York County Prison (another heart-wrenching immigration story).

Did you learn to write on a Big Chief Tablet
? I did! The pattern of the lines (solid/dashed) is imprinted on my brain. Here’s an interesting history of the company that produced those tablets.

Happy Sunday helen……a couple of things….got my paper yesterday and I love it! The online class is going great. As you know, my communication is pretty much non existent, vowing to myself to spend only what is necessary for me on my tablet. I am making a pretty small sampler of the projects which is sweet and I can take it on the go….
Should know about coming to the retreat by May.
Btw….I loved my big chief tablet!
Lots of love to you!
