Growing up in Eau Claire, WI, Lauren was always told by her mother, "If you are bored, use your hands and make something." She developed her admiration for design, strength of wood, and traditional craft while rebuilding a 1850s dovetail log cabin and studying woodworking and furniture design at UW-Madison. Exploring early American craft history, she is interested in breathing new life into antique tools and methods. Lauren is excited to advance tactile processes at North House through woodworking, weaving, picking berries, and baking bread.
