Mary Greensted presents a biography of Ernest Gimson (1864–1919) and an analysis of his work as an architect and designer of furniture, metalwork, plaster decoration, embroidery, and more. In London in the 1880s he joined the circle around William Morris at the Art Workers’ Guild and the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings. He later opened workshops in the Cotswolds and established a reputation for distinctive style and superb quality. Gimson’s work speaks directly to on going debates about the role of craft in the modern world.

Mary Greensted has worked at Cheltenham Art Gallery and been curator and deputy director at Cheltenham Museum. She is Chairman of the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen and author of The Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain.
