#var:page_name# cover

Paper is a ubiquitous, yet ambiguous material–how was it made? What exactly is it made from? Can I make paper?

Papermaking is a super-simple process that can be done at home with a blender, two picture frames, some mosquito net, a plastic bin, and a whole lotta recycled paper. In this exhibition, we want to know how you explore this therapeutic process.

You, too, can learn to make paper, either at PALM/etto Collective’s Environmentalism in Papermaking workshop or you can take a look at the papermaking zine on the website (https://palmettocollective.com/zines). There is no age limit to submit: all artists are welcome. Any questions can be directed to palmettocollective@gmail.com

Submission deadline: Saturday, April 14, 2018 by 6:00pm (physical drop-off at 517 W. Gaines St.)
Opening: Sunday, April 15, 2018 @ 5:00pm
Closing: Sunday, April 22, 2018 (you may pick up your work at this time)
