Arts and Crafts Month in Haslemere - Save the dates

Haslemere Visitor and Local Information Centre are running a number of events celebrating Haslemere's Arts and Crafts heritage during September 2014.  I'm delighted to be taking part in two of these events.  It would be great to see some of my 'followers' there if you can make it.

  • Saturday 6th September, 11am - I'm giving a talk on the Haslemere Peasant Arts movement at the Haslemere Educational Museum's Lecture Hall.  Tickets £2 each from Haslemere Museum
  • Saturday 13th September, 2.30pm - I'm giving a guided tour of the (outside!) of the Haslemere Peasant Arts buildings: Kings Road, Foundry Lane and Longdene Road - starting from Haslemere Station
The Weaving House, Kings Road, Haslemere c.1902
The Craftsman, January 1902
The press release also on this also says: 
"Make sure  you see the exhibition of contemporary craftwork in Haslemere Museum’s Waverley Room from 6 – 27th September, open Tuesday – Saturday from 10.00 am – 5.00 pm. Exhibitors reflect the original peasant crafts  and will be selling their work.  Why not take this opportunity to buy some quality and original gifts?
Sarah Adam from the Haslemere Visitor & Local Information Centre says “You will be fascinated to learn more about this aspect of Haslemere’s  local history. This is a great opportunity to see and learn more about the unique link Haslemere has with the arts & crafts movement. In fact, the Museum’s Waverley Room was where the original European Peasant Art Collection was displayed from the mid-1920’s to the late 1940's so it is wonderful to have this contemporary exhibition in the very same room.”"
