About the teacher:
Caroline Broadhead has dedicated over five decades to exploring the intricate relationship between objects and the human body. Her artistic endeavors have consistently centered around the concept of boundaries, whether they manifest as the interplay between surface and interior, presence and absence, public and private, or the definition of personal space and territoriality. Through the interplay of light, shadows, reflections, and movement, she has ventured beyond the confines of the physical form, delving into the outer reaches of the body's expression. By embracing larger scale projects and collaborations, Broadhead has ventured into the captivating realms of space and the boundaries that connect or separate individuals, thereby evoking subjective and deeply emotional responses. Caroline Broadhead trained at the Central School of Art and Design, London. Public collections that hold examples of her work include the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; the Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto; and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. She was the winner of the Jerwood Prize for Applied Arts: Textiles in 1997, and has held major retrospectives at CODA, The Netherlands in 2018, and at the Lethaby Gallery, London in 2019. 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.
