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.
