Lane Taplin

Lane is a native Coloradan who has come to Providence to meet and work with other enthusiastic artists and to attend RISD, where she is currently studying textiles. She loves weaving, collaboration, tea bags, hanging things from the ceiling, and working in any material that she can get her hands on. Over the past three years Lane has been on a quest to learn how to make as many useful things as possible. Some of the things she has learned to do recently include weaving rugs, making shoes, constructing a bike, baking bread from scratch, fort-building, and knitting funky hats. Her favorite activity is getting together with other people and making things inspires excitement! This is her first year as an artist mentor, and she is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with other artists and creative people at New Urban Arts.
