Veteran students are invited to reconstitute their military uniforms into paper. Like the material itself, this process means something unique to each participant.
It is often the case that an abundance of unserviceable uniforms are donated for these workshops, which enables people who no longer have their uniforms to make paper. These donated uniforms are sorted by branch of service and pulped separately.
The workshop will run throughout the day and veterans are welcome to join as their schedule allows.
The Peace Paper Project is an international organisation of hand papermakers, art therapists, social activists and fine artists. The organisation uses hand paper making across the globe to improve the lives of survivors of trauma and loss through the traditional practice of hand paper making. Since 2011, Peace Paper Project has set up over forty collaborating studios worldwide and has made paper with over 30,000 survivors.
