Helen Hiebert is a well-know paper artist in Colorado. I decided to enroll in her "Weaving in Winter" online class this year. I have never done paper weaving so thought it would be fun to attempt to learn this paper art throughout February. Committing to making art every day is always a challenge.
This is a photo I selected from a book called Silk Roads. It's full of fascinating photos of places I've never been.
It's only day 4 of the class and I really love this process. It's very calming and takes some careful placement of the papers. It reminds me of my quilt background where piecing together bits of fabric, makes an overall design. If you didn't know this was paper, this could have been made from a printed fabric panel.
By the end of February when the course sends, I will definitely try weaving with fabric and probably adding some stitches. Just because!
