Talk: Rustic Renaissance – the birth of Peasant Art at Foundry Meadow with Jo Buckrell

Following Haslemere Educational Museum’s recent publication of Catherine Eyre’s book “Rustic Renaissance – The Haslemere Peasants Arts Movement”, Jo Buckrell, the Museum’s researcher, will be following the trail of Joseph & Maude King and Godfrey & Ethel Blount in their early years, from London to the Haslemere area where, on Foundry Meadow, they established an enclave with a commercial and spiritual focus on handicraft and happiness. This talk will focus on their life and work through the 1890s, including the creation of work, examples of which are held by the Museum and at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
