The Earl Project is a community project with veterans/soldiers that promotes wellness and creativity through burn-out art workshops, using fire, collage, photocopy, and bleach color burn-out on fabric to tell their story, usually in non-objective, abstract ways. Participants take home work and also contribute to a community war stories cloth scroll inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry. Using burn-out techniques with mending stitches as both metaphor and realization of healing in a physical manifestation, they transform lived experience into art. The project is in honor of my Uncle Earl, a WWII PTSD survivor and fix creator.
