Artist list

Caroline Broadhead
Using jewellery design as a departure point, Broadhead’s objects were designed to be worn on the body and changed through touch and interaction. Further encompassing sculpture, installation, performance, textiles and photography, her practice is concerned with the borders of the individual – between inside and outside, public and private and the balance between materiality and image. Often working in collaboration, Broadhead’s works are activated by bodies and performers, examining the demarcation of human physicality.

A Central Saint Martins alumna, Broadhead held the positions of Jewellery and Textiles Programme Director and BA Jewellery Design Course Leader for nearly ten years at the College until her retirement in 2018 and is now Professor Emerita. She continues to teach on the course and is a guest lecturer at various institutions in and outside the UK.
