Joseph Johnson was a Black sailor who lived 200 years ago. When he was unfairly deprived of his pension in the early 19th century, Joseph became a familiar sight in London when, through his creativity and ingenuity he modelled a fantastic “ship hat” in which he would perform nautical songs around London docklands in order to earn money.

Drop in to find out more about Joseph and have a go at making his amazing hat to take home!

Sessions at 11am until 12noon and at 1:30pm until 4pm.
