The Rockland PFC Joseph P. Dwyer Veteran Peer Support Program and the Rockland County Veterans Agency offers a Frontline Paper Workshop on October 10, 9am-5pm. The workshop will be faciliatedby renowned Vietnam Veteran Artist, Walt Nygard.
Veterans gather and while sharing their stories engage in the transformative and often cathartic process of making handmade paper from U.S. military uniforms. The first step of this process is to DECONSTRUCT the uniform by cutting it down to postage stamp-sized pieces. Using traditional paper-making practices and equipment, these pieces are beaten into pulp, pulled into formed sheets, pressed and dried. We RECLAIM the uniform as handmade paper. While participants may not identify as artists, every veteran has a story. Frontline Paper provides the perfect vehicle to COMMUNICATE our stories.
