Transformational Papermaking for Veterans

Off Center Arts, the Museum of the American Military Family and the College of Santa Fe are collaborating to bring two papermaking workshops to veterans. “From Fatigues to Flags” is a transformational papermaking workshop in which combat fatigues are shredded into small strips and then, through a papermaking process, are transformed into paper. The end results are beautiful prayer flags, which will be displayed during the month of April at Off Center Arts. (808 Park Avenue SW, Albuquerque, NM 87102)

No artistic background is necessary– veterans are encouraged to bring cotton fatigues and t-shirts, which were worn during their military service. Lunch, papermaking equipment and all other materials will be provided. Workshops consist of three Sunday sessions, and it is important for participants to attend all three sessions, which will be held at Off Center Arts. Male workshop dates are: January 29, February 5, and 12 from 10:30-4:30 and female workshop dates are: March 19, 26, and April 2 from 10:30-4:30.


Instructor Claire Lissance has a counseling background, and has been a hand papermaker since 1986. Registration will be through the instructor. Her phone number is 505-450-1357. Email:   cdlune@aol.com .


This program was made possible through a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts and New Mexico Arts Commission.
