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. Learn more about Combat Paperhere.

This program is being held in conjunction with the exhibition War and Pieced: The Annette Gero Collection of Quilts from Military Fabrics. It is free and open to the public. RSVP is encouraged.

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

Nathan Lewisis a papermaker and bookbinder (but his parents only know about the tree service he works for). The first time he made paper he used the U.S Army uniform 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.
