With Fiona James

Explore the ideas and the personalities of the social and aesthetic movement of the late 19th/early 20th centuries which is known as The Arts and Crafts Movement. 

The movement was mainly concerned with architecture and decorative arts and originated in Britain.  We shall look at some of the main personalities associated with the movement, such as William Morris and John Ruskin but the influences on the group will also be considered (e.g. the influence of the medieval age and the Pre Raphaelites). 

The study day will look at Arts and Crafts practitioners both locally in the Cotswolds but also in Oxford, Surrey and The Lake District. It is hoped that, by the end of the morning, students will have acquired an understanding of the ideas inherent in the Movement and that they will be interested in continuing the day with a visit to nearby Kelmscott Manor, the home of the ‘father’ of The Arts and Crafts Movement, William Morris.
