A blog recording the Peasant Arts movement in Haslemere, Surrey, UK around the early 1900s, and it's founders Joseph King, Maude Egerton King, Godfrey Blount, Ethel Blount and Greville MacDonald. Arts and crafts, religion, literature, architecture, suffragettes, family trees, local locations and strong beliefs, this story has it all. Over a century later, their promotion of the pleasures of homemade craft is still relevant today.
When I started writing this blog, the thought of anyone other than myself or family under duress looking at it had not crossed my mind! My posts probably appear chaotic to anyone except me, and therefore to give some order to everything I have just added a new page to the blog, an index.
I hope visitors find it helpful.
