Women of the Art & Crafts Movement at Blackwell, The Arts and Crafts House, Cumbria, 15 September 2017–1 January 2018, from £8.00 - Book now

In anticipation of Lakeland Arts’ 2018 programme celebrating the 1918 Representation of People’s Act in which women first received the right to vote in the UK, Women of the Art & Crafts Movement highlights the diverse skills of the women artists and designers associated with the Arts & Crafts Movement.

The exhibition recognises works by women artists whose contributions have often been overlooked, or wrongly attributed in favour of a more prominent male family member.

Textiles, jewellery, bookbinding, enamels and illustrations by May Morris, Margaret Macdonald, Ann Macbeth and Phoebe Anna Traquair will be displayed, with loans from the Victoria & Albert Museum and National Museum of Scotland.
