Women of the Arts & Crafts Movement

Blackwell Arts and Crafts is just one and a half miles south of Bowness in the heart of the Lake District. The house itself was completed in 1900, designed by Arts and Crafts architect M.H. Baillie Scott as a holiday home for Sir Edward Holt, a brewer and former Lord Mayor from Manchester. It’s said to have significant international importance as it stands at the crossroads of Victorian design and modern 20th century architecture. Throughout the house, furniture, objects and fine art have been introduced to re-awaken the interiors in sympathy with Baillie Scott's original designs and ideas about the layout and decoration of houses.
