The workshop process allows direct participation in transforming the military uniform into unique works of paper representative of the individual and collective experience in military service. We expose participants to proficient techniques in basic sheet formation using a mould and deckle from the pulp rendered with a Hollander Beater. These sheets are the foundation of what can become a further activation of the paper by the creation of prints, journals, books or a one of a kind piece of artwork.
Western hand papermaking is a process in which plant based fibers used in textiles are repurposed for paper. The textile is cut apart into small pieces and beaten into a pulp with a machine called a Hollander Beater. This process accentuates an ancient practice that has its beginnings nearly two thousand years ago.
Today, we can blend some modern printing techniques with traditional papermaking. Pulp printing is a wet process that allows freshly formed sheets of paper to be instantaneously rendered with colorful imagery, permanently fusing the two in this versatile and approachable method.
Combat Paper transforms military uniforms into handmade paper. Participate in the workshop with Drew Cameron, papermaker, veteran artist and collaborator. As one of the founders his work has been rooted in processing uniforms and clothing material with many communities across the country. The paper is a collective way to use the material and create something new with it. Donations of uniforms and clothing are welcomed. This workshop is open to all.
