Si Wi Yah: Sartorial Representations of the African Diaspora 5-6 May 2018

The Costume Institute of the African Diaspora’s first dress conference seeks to understand how Diaspora communities came to be visually represented or have developed the agency to represent themselves and establish their identities through clothing and adornment. The conference workshops take place on Saturday 5 May 2018 Senate House, University of London, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HU 10am – 1.30pm.

Lucille will join the event on Saturday 5th May to deliver a workshop.

The Yorùbá Blues – What can we learn from Yorùbá indigo-dyed textiles?

Details – Textile artist and indigo dyer Lucille Junkere takes inspiration from her 2017 Winston Churchill travel Fellowship to south western Nigeria for this salon style workshop. She will introduce you to the visual language of Yorùbá indigo dyed cloths through photographs, video and textiles. The session includes an experimental mark making class where you will explore different techniques to create your own patterns which speak to your personal cultural identity. Resources provided.
