Warrior Paper

A creative process of breaking down camouflage uniforms to create works of art.
  • Transforming camouflage uniforms, to works of art

    Papermaking workshops, veterans use their uniforms from service to create works of art. The uniforms are transformed, beaten into a pulp, and formed into paper to share photos or writings.  Participants use the transformative process of papermaking to reclaim their uniforms and express their experiences with the military.

  • The source of information and inspiration for this project comes from the Combat Paper Project

    The Combat Paper Project, founded in 2007 by paper and book artist Drew Matott and soldier-turned-artist Drew Cameron, is a nonprofit organization that conducts workshops around the country teaching military veterans how to make paper by hand from their old uniforms. The labor-intensive process - the uniforms are literally beaten to a pulp and turned into a variety of paper art forms - is meant to give veterans a vehicle to tell their personal stories of military service.
