Congratulations to Programme Leader for Jewellery and Textiles, Caroline Broadhead, who received a Lifetime Achievement award from The Goldsmiths Craft & Design Council at a ceremony earlier this week. The award is given as recognition of a recipient’s outstanding contribution and commitment to the craft and industry of silversmithing, jewellery and the allied crafts.
Caroline originally trained as a jeweller in the 70s at the Central School. She set up her own practice in Covent Garden and ran a business with Nuala Jamison, making buttons and acrylic jewellery for designers including Jean Muir. Her practice examines the body, particularly its absence, senses and movements and her body of work ranges from large scale pieces – veils, collars and sleeves, to dance performances created with choreographers, to installations using light and shadow. She has also curated shows at Marsden Woo Gallery and the British Crafts Centre. Caroline joined Central Saint Martins in 2009 as Course Leader of BA Jewellery Design.
Speaking about her award, Caroline said: “I’m delighted to receive this award, it is a real honour. It’s fantastic to have work recognised not only personally, but also for the BA Jewellery Design course and CSM.”
