Main Group Meeting 16th March

Talk at 2:30pm


  Halcyon Days by Barley Roscoe

This month we have a talk by Barley Roscoe titled Halcyon Days which will give us a context for some of the best British handwoven and hand block printed textiles of the 1920's and 30's, with particular reference to Ethel Mairet, Elizabeth Peacock and Rita Beales.

Barley is a consultant curator, writer and lecturer, and a member of the BBC Antiques Roadshow team of experts. Her background is firmly rooted in the Arts & Crafts tradition, as her mother was the great niece of Ernest Gimson the renowned architect, furniture designer and maker. Barley Roscoe established the Crafts Study Centre within the Holburne Museum of Art, Bath where she was Director from 1986-1999, and was awarded an MBE for her work there."
