Laura Jones is our artist in residence in FabLab @ The Word and is running these sessions as a participatory arts project. Once you’ve created your unique item you’ll then be able to take it away with you. Laura will then use your designs to help create an art installation to be displayed at The Word in April 2020.


Laura Jones is a mixed media artist, and works with both 2D and 3D art forms. Her work collaborates innovative aesthetic and narrative forms using emerging digital tools, and she celebrates tradition whilst utilising new media to immerse in both the new and already established art techniques. Laura hopes to encourage a continuation of discussion surrounding reading for young people, and through this project, demonstrate the artistic influences and inspiration that can be drawn from the written word.
