FREE Frontline Paper Sunday Workshops
12-4pm at Frontline Arts' Studio at 440 River Rd. in Branchburg, NJ
For too long, we have lived in a time where veterans tend to suppress their experiences – producing a culture of the “silent veteran.” Frontline Paper (formerly known as Combat Paper NJ) is a unique art project that provides artistic tools, professional instruction, and community support to explore experiences through art. These workshops ultimately give participants the space to share their stories publicly, breaking the cycle of silence.
Our specialty is the transformative process of making paper from military uniforms. Through workshops, this handmade paper creates a platform for veterans and non-veterans to come together and share stories, providing a “new language” and much needed discourse between veterans and society. In casual drop-in sessions, on college campuses, in community centers, at pop-up street corner workshops, and at VA and military hospitals, veteran artists teach the art of papermaking and printmaking to veterans of all service eras.
We work hard to ensure our Frontline Paper workshops are always FREE for Veterans. Our Veteran-Artist Instructors are here in the studios every Sunday from 12-4pm during our open, drop-in hours. No RSVP or fee required. Stop by to check out the studios, learn about the program, and get hands-on with papermaking from military uniforms.
We can help you create your own unique batches of paper pulp from your military uniforms, or you can work from our community paper pulp, comprised of donated military uniforms from different branches of the military.
We respectfully request Sunday workshops stay focused on the Veteran community. If you are not a Veteran, but are interested in the program, please contact us for a tour on a different day. We host free public papermaking demonstrations at Art Festivals across the state and offer various workshops to the public.
