THE LINK TO THE ZOOM EVENT WILL BE SENT OUT ON THE DAY BEFORE THE EVENT.
Arthur Cameron was one of the liveliest craftsmen working for C R Ashbee’s Guild of Handicraft in London’s East End and was briefly expelled for bad language by his fellow Guildsmen. Although he started with the Guild as an office boy, he became a talented craft metalworker – the museum has a fine charger designed and made by him – and thrived following the Guild’s move to Chipping Campden. His story however doesn’t end there. Disaster struck following the collapse of the Guild, providing a reality check for the ambitions of the Arts and Crafts Movement.
Our speaker for the online talk is Mary Greensted, a trustee of the Guild of Handicraft Trust. Mary has been working on the archives at Court Barn in Chipping Campden as part of the museum’s HLF-funded Refresh project taking place early in 2020.
