Rose Sinclair will be one of designers and researchers featured in “Craftivism: Making a difference”, a programme due to be aired on BBC Four on Monday 1 February 2021 at 10 pm (afterwards, it will be available on iPlayer). The host of the programme is comedian Jenny Éclair.
Rose will be talking about Dorcas Clubs, her Caribbean Front Room installations, and Black women and crafting.
