Any Questions?

  • What were everyday objects like in the 1850s?
  • What were the main aims of the Arts and Crafts Movement?
  • What did William Morris base his wallpaper and textile designs on?
  • Who were the other main designers of the Movement?

This unit covers the impact of the Great Exhibition of 1851 and the setting up of the Arts and Crafts Movement in the UK.

It has a particular focus on the work of William Morris and his desire to revive craft traditions, and also looks at the pioneering work of the later Arts and Crafts designers who began to consider the potential of mechanical production as a way of producing well-designed goods that could be afforded by the growing Victorian middle-classes.

  • Volume 1 tells the story of the 'Crystal Palace' structure and the exhibits on display. It then describes the aims and influences of the artists and designers of the Arts and Crafts movement and the textile and wallpaper designs of William Morris.
  • Volume 2 looks at The Red House - Morris's home - and then presents the work of other Arts and Crafts designers such as Ashbee, Crane, Mackmurdo and Dresser whose work greatly influenced the subsequent Art Nouveau movement.
