Lewisham's Caribbean Front Room

Goldsmiths writes:

From October 26-29, experience a unique installation at Lewisham Shopping Centre, recreating a 1970s Caribbean front room and a week of free live making and crafting workshops with Goldsmiths designer, Rose Sinclair.

The arrival of Caribbean women on the Windrush in 1948 started a new story about how textiles travel and how knowledge and culture is recorded, preserved and shared.

To celebrate Black History Month, explore the spaces and practices of Caribbean women and the textiles they displayed in the front room.

We really want to hear about your textiles stories. If you have ever been a member of a Dorcas society or Dorcas club, or see yourself as a modern Dorcas maker, share your memories with us. #21stCenturyDorcasMakers

Crafters and makers of all abilities welcome!
