Description

Lucille Junkere returns to the CIAD Exchange to talk about her indigo dyeing journey since her residency at the William Morris Gallery. She has recently traveled to Nigeria through a Winston Churchill Travel Fellowship where she studied indigo dyeing techniques amongst Yoruba artisans. Àdírẹ is the Yoruba word for the resist dyed cloth made in Yoruba towns in Nigeria. The cloth functions both as an aesthetic expression and a means of communication, offering a deep insight into Yoruba religion, culture, folklore and history. Her talk with be illustrated with short videos, photography, music and Lucille’s own indigo work.

The event will start promptly at 6pm and finish at 8pm. The first hour will consist of the talk and the last hour will be the refreshments and networking. Please arrive promptly so as not to miss anything. We look forward to seeing you on Friday 28th July at London College of Fashion.
