This exhibition traces the origins, legacy and enduring appeal of the historic Arts and Crafts Movement and its fascination with the creation of the home. Through the work and ideas of John Ruskin and William Morris, the exhibition explores how subsequent generations of designers created new ways of living and working. The exhibition also looks at the link between house and garden and how nature became a primary source of inspiration for designers. Devised as a series of encounters between historic and contemporary works including Timorous Beasties, Sebastian Cox, Gertrude Jekyll and Sir Gordon Russell and a new commission by Rosa Nguyen.
