Lauren Mabry

Join Lauren Mabry for a demonstration workshop in conjunction with her solo show at Ferrin Contemporary. She will discuss several of her processes from start to finish, creating a one of a kind Cylinder while students observe. On the first day, Lauren will build a form and use her signature monoprinting techniques to build a rich, complex surface with low fire slips and underglazes. On the second day, she will discuss how she builds her dimensional drawings with extruded components. Students can expect to learn a wide range of techniques that can be used for any style of work, at any temperature. No experience is required. Limited to 15.
