JUNE 9 & 10
Collaborative Papermaking with the Combat Paper Project
In the courtyard, 12:00 noon to 6:00 pm
Join Drew Cameron of Combat Paper Project, seen below right, to make handmade sheets of paper created from military uniforms and other fibers. Participants are invited to contribute an item of clothing to the communal fibers and share their personal histories with the group. If you contribute clothing and would like to pull paper sheets from your own fibers, please be here by 3:00 pm each day to allow time for cutting and beating. Papers need to dry over several days; participants can come back to pick up their sheets. This workshop is FREE and open to the public.
