Artist Laura Marsh is known for her vibrant ‘identity banners,’ which represent the desire to become an inclusive society that recognizes diversity as a positive sign of cultural strength. In this artmaking workshop, the artist will guide students as they explore and analyze their identities through sewing, embroidery and assemblage! After learning introductory sewing techniques, students will create bold identity banners of their own – a colorful visual statement that is equal parts flag and self-portrait!
Marsh has exhibited nationally at venues including NADA @ Locust Projects for Art Basel; Printed Matter, and Tilton Gallery in NY. She is a current artist in residence at ArtCenter South Florida in Miami Beach.
