MCD Design Lab presents a Hands-on Military Design Class. Drew Cameron of Combat Paper leads an immersive, hands-on papermaking workshop that reflects his provocative, gallery featured work in MCD's current exhibition, "Art and Other Tactics: Contemporary Craft by Artist Veterans." Participants will learn about the craft and process of making paper from strips of old military uniforms, as well as the proficient technique of pulp printing. Western hand papermaking is a process in which plant based fibers used in textiles are repurposed for paper. The textile is cut apart into small pieces and beaten into a pulp with a machine called a Hollander Beater. This process accentuates an ancient practice that has its beginnings nearly two thousand years ago. Today, we can blend some modern printing techniques with traditional papermaking. Pulp printing is a wet process that allows freshly formed sheets of paper to be instantaneously rendered with colorful imagery, permanently fusing the two in this versatile and approachable method. Drew will also present the meaning behind his imagery and illustrate how those concepts are reflected in today's world: "The story of the fiber, the blood, sweat and tears, the months of hardship and brutal violence are held within those old uniforms. The uniforms often become inhabitants of closets or boxes in the attic. Reshaping that association of subordination, of warfare and service, into something collective and beautiful is our inspiration." -Drew Cameron 2007 **Guests will get to make their own projects using both the papermaking and pulp printing techniques. Some projects will need to dry overnight and will be mailed to participants, or held for pick up. Gallery admission to both current exhibitions and light refreshments included.**
