Dialogue + Studio: Handmade Paper with Combat Paper

Thursday, October 12, 2–5 pm.
Free with registration: http://bit.ly/2h9jMeu

Combat Paper is an artist collective that transforms military uniforms into handmade paper. Join Ithaca-based artist and veteran Nathan Lewis as he demonstrates how to transform uniforms into pulp, while discussing the myriad ways that textiles carry stories.

The Dialogue + Studio workshop series offers participants opportunities to gain insight into and engage with self-taught art, past and present, at a deep level. Focused discussions about select themes, techniques, and materials featured in current exhibitions couple with related expert-led hands-on workshops.

Nathan Lewis is a papermaker and bookbinder (but his parents only know about the tree service he works for). The first time that he made paper, he used the U.S. Army uniform that he wore in the United States military invasion of Iraq. His work continues to deal with themes of war and the military. Nathan maintains a secret book arts bunker in the hills of the Finger Lakes. Look for his neatly stacked pile of firewood.
