In addition to presenting a stunning exhibition for our spring feature, Simon Moore will be discussing a series of talks across the four days about Arts & Crafts spoons.
The effects of Birmingham as a central hub and of the Glasgow School of Art for Arts & Crafts spoons
This talk will explore how Birmingham was set as a major influence for designing and manufacturing spoons during the Arts and Crafts and later periods. As well as a look at Glasgow at this time and the influence of Mackintosh, the Glasgow School of Art plus the Keswick School of Industrial Arts.
