Designers from the Arts and Crafts Movement such as William Morris are well known but the Midlands made a huge contribution to the movement as well. Designers at The Bromsgrove Guild of Handicrafts, for example, produced the exquisite wrought iron gates for Buckingham Palace.

Three lectures will set the work of Midlands designers in the context of the national Arts and Crafts Movement using the examples of jewelry made by Arthur and Georgina Gaskin, stained glass by Florence Cam, ceramics from the Ruskin Pottery and more.

We will also hear about the best locations in the region to see examples of Arts and Crafts design.
