Peace Paper to visit us on December 19, 3-6pm

Peace Paper: 
Peace Paper utilizes traditional hand papermaking as a means of engaging communities in art practices which bring people together, broadcast their stories, and transform their fibers into meaningful art pieces. The project operates everywhere from private workshops to public demonstrations in order to perpetuate the art of hand papermaking while adapting to the needs of each specific community. Peace Paper merges its skill set of papermaking, bookbinding, printmaking, and creative writing with the unique practices and concepts of host communities as a way of empowering our collaboration. 

The Torpedo Factory Art Center is honored to present Peace Paper. As a sneak peek to our July 2012 Exhibition, Peace Paper is providing a hands on presentation in the main hall of the Art Center, where they will talk about their program, and give the audience a chance to get their hands wet. This event is free and open to the public.
