Crafting the Line – Schools Project with Jasleen Kaur

Arts & Media School Islington (Islington) – Herbert Morrison Primary School (Lambeth) – Soho Parish Primary (Westminster) – Stamford Hill Primary School (Haringey) – Walthamstow School for Girls (Waltham Forest) – William Ellis School (Camden)

Artist Jasleen Kaur lead a project with six schools located along the Victoria line resulting in ambitious artwork displayed at Underground stations in summer 2016. Working with Jasleen, pupils went on a filmic journey of the Victoria line, above ground, to explore and document its diverse range of local cultures, communities and craftspeople.

With reference to local stores, skills and craftspeople located close to the Victoria line, pupils worked to produce an alternative archive of hand-made prototypes and assemblages that visually catalogue the different parts of their journey. Their final objects will contribute towards an imaginary shop stretching the length of the Victoria line.

Part of Underline: Art & Music for the Victoria line, a series of artists’ projects and a free, public programme located along the Victoria line.
