“The Arts & Crafts, emerging as the artistic and cultural arm of a new social and political awakening toward the end of the 19th century…

This arm held out, through the teachings of Morris, Webb, Lethaby, Crane and others, the promise of freedom from the tyranny of historical styles, and a new English, or Scottish, vernacular, based on functional requirements, naturalism and honest craftsmanship. Where other periods or architectural groupings are described in terms of style the Arts & Crafts is invariably dubbed a movement. ” from the Voysey society page
