Scraps of fabric, tubs of a weird watery substance, tarps all over the floor and eager kiddos!  The Peace Paper Project is at KidsTLC! Thanks to generous grants and donations, this unique experience is back to share another round of learning, exploration and creativity! Peace Paper Project provides our kids with a chance to explore and directly participate in the ancient art of paper making.  The facilitators, Drew Matott and Margaret Mahan, share their passion for taking old and transforming it into new.  All the paper pulp comes from old clothes and fabric, often filled with memories of pain, trauma and sadness but made new again when it is shredded and ground into multi-colored pulp, ready to be pressed into new works of art.  A dress from a domestic violence victim, a pair of jeans from a homeless teen, a white t-shirt from a disabled veteran, a pair of shorts from a young victim of abuse – all turned into something with new purpose, beauty and meaning.
