Heritage Foundation, Letchworth Garden City
Arts & Crafts Exhibition
The Heritage Foundation supports the Letchworth Community Museum which was opened in 2015 to display temporary exhibitions provided by the community.
The Museum is hosting an exhibition entitled Arts & Crafts in Letchworth between May and August 2016 explaining the influence of the Arts & Crafts movement in the world’s first Garden City, and showing some of the treasures of the Garden City Collection.
It was great to have a wealth of historic imagery and artifacts to help inspire us to create an engaging visitor experience. The Arts & Crafts movement is well known for celebrating craftsmanship and the natural beauty of materials so we sought to reflect this in the use of wooden picture frames and textured canvas panels.
From the approval of our initial design concepts, we had just under 3 weeks to complete this exhibition, transforming two rooms into an environment evocative of the Arts & Crafts era.
