At Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum Arts and Crafts Museum

This site has been created by The Wilson, Cheltenham's art gallery & museum. The Wilson holds a nationally-important collection on the Arts & Crafts Movement in Britain.

The Arts and Crafts Movement was one of the most important design movements of the 19th and early 20th centuries. It revolutionised how people looked at their homes and influenced how we look at the world in which we live. This website explores the Designated Arts and Crafts Movement collections at the Wilson.
