The rapid growth of the garment industry in NYC at the turn of the 20th century brought a large number of young, unmarried women into the workplace. Often forced to work in sweatshop-like conditions, they were easily exploited by their employers but drew upon a spirit of independence to begin organizing unions, charities and newspapers. In 1909, when a general strike was called, 20,000 to 30,000 workers joined the protest.

Using clay unearthed beneath London Bridge station during redevelopment work, members of the Associated Clay Workers Union have led a project to create new ceramics using this clay. They took inspiration from diverse sources: artefacts found during digging including Roman lamps, Victorian pipes and building tools. Amy Leung (pictured) drew on 17th century Bartmann jugs found in the excavation.
