Combat Paper NJ

Combat Paper NJ with program final small

Combat Paper NJ hosts a free, drop-in, workshop for all veterans every Second Sunday of every month at The Printmaking Center of New Jersey, from 12pm – 6pm. All Veterans are welcome. No registration required.
All veterans have a story to tell. For too long, we have lived in a culture where veterans tend to suppress their experiences. Combat Paper NJ (CPNJ) can change the taboo surrounding the sharing of their experiences. This unique project offers the artistic tools and professional instruction to veterans, providing a space to use art and writing to explore their experiences. Our specialty is the transformative process of making handmade paper from military uniforms. This paper creates a platform for veterans to share their stories, providing a “new language” for self-expression.
CPNJ is run by veterans, for veterans – but there are ways for everyone to get involved. See for more details. (New website coming soon!)
