Paper Illuminated Online Class – Weeks 5 & 6

You may wonder why weeks 5 & 6 come before weeks 3 and 4. Well, there were a few equipment and materials glitches that happened due my traveling. They will show up later, but this is the foldable paper chochin lamp that I made this past week.

I collaged my collapsable the paper on my chochin lamp rather than using the template Helen provided.

Week 5 was building the armature (which can be used over again and again). Week 6 was making the lamp shade. I collaged mine rather than following the instructions exactly. I like the way it came out.

The chochin lampshade can be made in different shapes and sizes. There are so many different possibilities with this type of lampshade. My mind is swimming with possibilities.

Paper Illuminated Online Class – Week 2

I’m taking an online class from Helen Hiebert called Paper Illuminated. This past week I made a wraparound lampshade. I didn’t have a lamp the right size so the photo shows a bit of the bulb base. Still, I do like how the lamp looks when it’s lit.

When I signed up for the class, I thought I’d be home during the time of the class. I was for the first two weeks. Now, however, I’m traveling again. I packed the remainder of the supplies and have them with me. I am hoping I can make the rest of the projects while I’m gone.

Online Class: Paper Illuminated by Helen Hiebert

A number of years ago I took a class from paper artist, Helen Hiebert, just before she moved to Colorado. I learned a lot and enjoyed the class immensely. Helen is a great teacher.

I thought I’d like to take another class from Helen. However, Colorado is a bit far for me to travel to take a class.

So when I heard Helen was going to do an online class, I jumped at the opportunity to sign up for it. It starts on March 8, and I expect to be back home from my travels by then (thankfully). P.S. There is an early bird discount available if you sign up before February 1.

I am going to clear my schedule (as much as I can) so I can have time to play with the structures Helen is going to teach. It’s a 5 week class, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to find enough time during each week. It’s so easy for me to overbook my time, but this is going to be so worth it.

There’s going to be a private Facebook page for those of us who are taking the class. It’s going to be a lot of fun seeing what everyone is doing. We’ll be able to ask questions of Helen too.

These are the five projects we’ll be making in Helen Hiebert’s Paper Illuminated online class.

In addition to the class, I’ve ordered the Supply Kit for the class to make it easier for me to make the projects. If you take the class, you will need a few other materials like a cutting mat, straight pins, a craft knife and such. You can check out the materials need on Helen’s website link below.
