The Black Artisans is a new photography exhibition by Jo Sealy that celebrates Black makers and craftspeople, capturing traditional sectors of UK heritage crafts alongside areas of cultural heritage.
While there are many Black artisans operating in the UK, they are rarely seen.
The Black Artisans aims to showcase this talent and learn about the routes into their chosen professions through a series of recorded artisan talks that will be made available to schools and colleges for further education purposes, in collaboration with the Heritage Crafts Association and television presenter, furniture restorer and eco designer Jay Blades MBE.
The Black Artisans will launch at the William Morris Gallery in east London, 28th September to 3rd October 2021, before touring in central London and the Midlands.
The Black Artisans is funded by a Waltham Forest Council, Make It Happen grant, awarded to arts and culture projects across the borough. www.theblackartisans.org
