Exploring nature in the Arts and Crafts movement
During the pandemic being outside in the countryside and our gardens has been more important than ever before on our mental health and wellbeing. More than 100 years ago the designers of the Arts and Crafts movement drew much of their inspiration from nature and spent a lot of time outside, walking, cycling, gardening, watching and sketching especially here in the Cotswolds where many, including William Morris, settled. This talk by curator Kirsty Hartsiotis explores Cotswolds-based Arts and Crafts designers including Ernest Gimson, Sidney and Ernest Barnsley, William and Eve Simmonds, Alfred and Louise Powell, Barron and Larcher and, of course, Morris and his daughter May.
