Hand Heart and Soul

  • Make a Selection
Arts and Crafts artist-designers changed the lives of Scots. Through the furnishing of public buildings, exhibitions, church craft and home design, they aimed to restore beauty to everyday experience. They worked in such diverse fields as furniture, textiles, jewellery and metalwork, glass, ceramics, mural decoration and architectural design and crafts.

Theirs is a narrative of close networks of families and friends, men and women, designers and industrialists dedicated to the rights of the individual and to the proper place of art within modern society. It is a remarkable and often inspiring story of ideals, commitment and imagination.
