A West Midlands Area event - 'Head, Hand and Heart: the Birmingham Group of Artist-craftsmen' Professor Anne Anderson BA PhD FSA Tuesday 17 October 2017

The ‘Birmingham Group’ was an informal group of, now relatively unknown but influential, artist-craftsmen, working in Birmingham in the late 19th/early 20th centuries.  Members of the group also overlapped with other more formal organisations, including the Birmingham Guild of Handicraft, the Ruskin Pottery and the Bromsgrove Guild of Applied Arts.  Professor Anderson will examine their work & legacy, & how they were influenced by leading artists like Edward Burne-Jones, who was born in Birmingham, & William Morris.  The day will conclude in the galleries to view some of their work & with a visit to St. Philip’s Cathedral to see the remarkable Burne-Jones windows. 

Venue: Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery  10 am  - 3:30 pm
