English Arts and Crafts Houses, Gardens and Collections
19 June – 5 July 2020
17 day fully escorted tour led by Dr James Broadbent AM.
The HHA’s 2020 English study tour will focus on the Arts and Crafts Movement. Arising from the polemics of William Morris and John Ruskin and assuming its name from the Arts and Crafts Exhibition of 1888, the Arts and Crafts Movement surely and quickly transformed the architecture, garden design and decorative arts of late 19th Century and early 20th Century Britain. It remains a significant influence in contemporary design.
Our tour encompasses the work of the Movement’s major designers – including William Morris, Philip Webb, C.F.A. Voysey, Charles Robert Ashbee, Detmar Blow, Gertrude Jekyll, Edwin Lutyens, Ernest Gimson and the Barnsley brothers – visiting major examples of their work in the Home Counties, the West Country and the Cotswolds.
As with all the HHA study tours there are also visits to many important but smaller and more unusual places and to houses, gardens and collations not normally open to the public.
