Combat Paper Workshop by Drew Cameron
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Craft Garden
1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, free

Artist Drew Cameron has been showing his art in the “United by Hand: Work and Service” exhibit since early February, along with Alicia Dietz and Ehren Tool, to pay tribute to U.S. veterans. It’s also a way, without making too many waves, to raise awareness about the history and current state of war culture in the United States. Cameron will show how to repurpose plant-based fibers from donated military uniforms and civilian clothing and will turn those scraps into handmade paper. When it’s all said and done, selected sheets of the finished paper will be displayed in the gallery through May 27.
