The Arts and Crafts movement incited an artistic response to industrialized 19th-century Britain. William Morris, A.W.N. Pugin, and Daniel Gabriel Rossetti were among the foremost proponents of the movement, romanticizing medieval history in search of inspiration and honest handmade crafts.
Textile historian Elizabeth Lay presents an image-rich program that examines three of the era’s lesser-known names: May Morris, the daughter of William Morris; Phoebe Anna Traquair, a highly prolific artist in many mediums; and Margaret Macdonald one of the “Glasgow Girls” and wife of Charles Rene Macintosh. All excelled in embroidery, elevating it to fine-art status. Their work stands out as some of the most identifiable of the Arts and Crafts period
Following the presentation, fabric artist and quilt-making instructor Lauren Kingsland leads a studio project in which participants create their own Arts and Crafts-inspired embroidered needle case in felted wool.
Limited to 20 participants.
