The tour begins June 11 – June 20, 2022 and will be based on a series of articles on the Women of the Arts and Crafts Movement, examining the work of women who designed and created beautiful buildings and objects. We will be looking at work in museums and in private collections, as well as meeting with scholars, authors, collectors and current craftworkers and artists.
From May 21 to May 30, this tour will take us to examine the works of the artists, designers, and craft workers of the Arts and Crafts Movement starting in London and traveling to the southwestern part of England. We’ll visit St. Mary Magdalene, Paddington, Holy Trinity, Sloane Street. St. Martin’s Blackheath, Chagford, Exeter, Truro Cathedral, and so many more!
Our tour will trace many of the events and locations associated with Morris’s hugely prolific career, while also examining his fruitful collaborations with many of the leading artists, designers and architects of his time and his subsequent influence on later craft-workers. We begin in London, where Morris spent the greater part of his life and where outstanding examples of his work can be seen at the Victoria & Albert Museum and at Holy Trinity Church, Chelsea.
