This past weekend was highlighted by a wild west pop-up workshop in Durango, Colorado. The beautiful mountainous setting inspired lots of landscape images, along with many purely sculptural pop-up scenes. Eleven students spent two days in an intensive study of paper engineering structures, and I’m sure many more creations will be designed following the class.
While in Durango, I stayed friends Mary Ellen and Wendell Long. Mary Ellen is a nationally known paper and book artist who creates wonderful environmental book s that change with the weather and the seasons.
We had a wonderful time looking at her work, seeing a show of fabulous crochet fashions aby Birgitta Bjerke at Fort Lewis College, and enjoying Wendell’s culinary creations.
