|sHeadsHandsksHearts||The Arts & Crafts Movement in Great Britain 1850-1915|
This is the home page of our website which celebrates the British Arts and Crafts movement. The site is an educational and information resource, helping to broaden interest in the Arts and Crafts Movement.
Latest additions to the site are listed in the What's New section, and include more information about the Barnstable company Shapland and Petter.
The motto 'Head Hand and Heart' is taken from an inscription used by Charles Voysey, which became the motto for the Society of Designers in 1896. These three words are the keys to understanding Arts and Crafts: 'Head' for creativity and imagination, 'Hand' for skill and craft, 'Heart' for honesty and for love.
