Arts & Crafts Ham­mer­smith

Country Life Every Week - - Focus On The Visual Arts -

Arts & Crafts Ham­mer­smith is a new part­ner­ship be­tween The Emery Walker Trust and The Wil­liam Mor­ris So­ci­ety, set up to high­light the area’s artis­tic her­itage. It has en­abled these or­gan­i­sa­tions to un­der­take much-needed re­pairs to the fab­ric of both Emery Walker’s House and Kelm­scott House, to im­prove en­vi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions and open up ac­cess to their col­lec­tions, which tell the his­to­ries—per­sonal, so­cial and po­lit­i­cal—of the arts and crafts that are deeply rooted in this part of Ham­mer­smith. The col­lec­tions and ar­chives of both houses are also cur­rently be­ing doc­u­mented and pho­tographed in prepa­ra­tion for an on­line cat­a­logue—visit art­sand­craft­sham­mer­smith.org.uk
