Last week I taught a paper engineering workshop for a group a high school students at the Colorado Academy in Lakewood, Colorado, on the outskirts of Denver. Many found the work challenging, but the students met the challenge on the last day when they combined several pop-up forms to create their own pages, incorporating their drawings and collages into the pieces. Thanks to Richard Kelly for inviting me to work with this great group of kids.
I also had the chance to see Denver’s botoanical gardens with a current installation of Henry Moore sculptures, the Denver Art Museum, and the fabulous Kirkland Museum with its collection of 20th-century furniture, paintings and furnishings. After shopping at Denver’s EVOO Marketplace (which sells olive oil and balsamic vinegar exclusively) and at the Savory Spice store, I packed my bags with some delectable flavors to enjoy on my return to Washington, DC.
