Exhibition: Women in the Arts & Crafts Movement
In celebration of 1918 Act which first gave some women the right to vote, we are showcasing the work of three females associated with the Arts and Crafts movement. All three had links with Gloucestershire but very different skills. The best-known, May Morris, was a designer, needlewoman and political activist. Louise Powell was a calligrapher, embroiderer and painter while Nelly Erichson was an artist and illustrator.
