Event description
Rose Sinclair invites you into her Caribbean Front Room for an online weaving workshop and opportunity to share migration stories

About this Event

Led by Goldsmiths Designer and Lecturer, Rose Sinclair, participants will learn how to weave using a mini-loom while exploring the importance of craft and design to the story of post-war Caribbean settlement in the UK.

Beginning with the story of Windrush stowaway and dressmaker Evelyn Wauchope, as told by Rose, participants will be invited to share their own migration stories and reflections as they weave.

Only a limited number of places are available and each participant will be provided with weaving materials by post, although participants should provide their own scissors. The workshop will take place online.

Registrations will end one week before the workshop to ensure weaving packs can be posted in time to reach you. Please do not register if you're not sure you can attend.

Under 16s welcome, but must be supervised by an adult.

The workshop will take place online and a link will be emailed to attendees 48 hours before in advance.

Part of Windrush Day 2020.
