Arts And Crafts Movement



arts and crafts movement
What essay question can you ask on the Arts and Craft Movement?

I need help with my homework. It generall has to include dates and designers from that period.

Some questions you could ask:

Why was it formed? (reaction against machine-made objects)

What were its aims? (‘joy of labour’, ‘honesty of construction’ etc. -to change social division of labour as well as provide a new aesthetic)

Was it successful? (The ideas of William Morris etc versus the needs of the middle classes -who largely preferred the cheaper machine-made goods)

Who was most influential within the movement? (William Morris, John Ruskin, Frank Lloyd Wright etc)

I think most questions could cover the dates and designers involved, so the choice is yours!
Hope that helps!
