Humanitarian craftswomen sought
The Herald of the Golden Age (August 1902) the following advert:
“A GENTLE CRAFT
Mr Godfrey Blount, of Haslemere, Surrey, is going to try an experiment in wood carving on a new style and he would like to hear from any humanitarian craftswomen who are interested in the subject.
The school that he suggests would be conducted on Fruitarian lines.
The more that we can combine practical arts and science and agriculture and industries of every sort with our humane ideals the better it will be for all, but new experiments must be well and carefully thought out.
Those who wish to learn the details of the scheme should direct to the promoters of this Peasant Art Industry."
