The Peasant Arts Society’s founders, Joseph King MP and his wife Maude Egerton King (nee Hine), Godfrey Blount and his wife Ethel (Maude’s sister) and Greville MacDonald (Joseph King’s cousin) were writers and artists who all had a significant impact upon the local area. Their rejection of mass consumer products and belief in the restorative pleasures of home-making has parallels today. That a number of the tapestries created are held by the Victoria and Albert Museum is testament to the enduring quality of their work.
