Aspects of the Arts & Crafts Movement

29 January - 21 March 2010

The focus in the period rooms at Blackwell will move towards cabinet-maker Arthur Simpson, with new loans of furniture produced for another substantial Lake District holiday home, built at exactly the same date as Blackwell, being displayed alongside pieces from the Trust’s own collection. In the first floor gallery rooms archive material, including original designs from the Trust’s Simpson archive, will complement the period room displays. This will be supported by displays of textiles, silver and ceramics from private lenders and our own collections.

Supported by - Arts Council England
