Bio

Caroline Hope is a food researcher, tutor social historian and art practitioner. She has two areas of interest.

The first is the contextual relevance of the numerous private and public spaces in which English tea rituals have been performed in the past and how these continue to evolve.

Currently Caroline continues to curate and present English tea-related events as principal of The English Tea Table.

The second project is an investigation into the contextual relevance of past public and private traumas in of one branch of her family, how these have evolved and materialized and shaped her own sense of identity.

Caroline recently completed her MA By Project at London Metropolitan University. Her research project was concerned with the use of model-making to transfer knowledge about notions of English politeness through the lens of the afternoon tea table.

Caroline is interested in curatorial and writing projects which engage with a diverse audience; with the intention of making art, practice and history relevant and accessible to all.
