Caroline Broadhead's practice brings the unusually autonomous areas of jewellery, textiles and performance art into close relationship. She describes her work as ‘mainly driven by ideas but making and materials are an integral part of the process. You can’t make things without considering the craft of it’.
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. 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.
