Event details

Sunday 11 September, 3-5 pm

This talk is about Ernest Gimson and the Arts and Crafts tradition, looking at his buildings, furniture, metalwork, and embroidery designs, and discussing his relationship with SPAB.

Jane Darke's talk draws on the recent book by Annette Carruthers, Mary Greensted, and Barley Roscoe;  like Barley, Jane is the granddaughter of Basil Gimson, Ernest's nephew, the second owner of Stoneywell cottage in Leicestershire (now in the hands of the National Trust) where she spent many happy summers as a child. 

Her home in Oxford, built in 1999 in green oak using traditional methods, houses a small collection of Art and Crafts furniture by Gimson, the Barnsleys, and their followers, spanning the whole of the twentieth century.  

Tickets are £6 per person, which includes tea and cake.

About the Gloucestershire Regional Group
Lynne Pardoe, Group Organiser, says "It was ten years ago when I came to live in Gloucestershire and, surprised by the absence of a SPAB group, I started one. Since then its gone from strength to strength, with a steady core of regular attenders and an ever changing background of newer members. Since I don’t work in the field of conservation I rely on suggestions to arrange visits which don’t usually open for the public and thankfully, because I’ve been running it so long people know me and will make suggestions, or offer up their own properties for a visit. I love this."
