The Arts & Crafts Movement is, like the designed landscape park, one of Britain’s great contributions to the international art movements of the late 19th century and onwards. Some Arts & Crafts architects and craftspeople were still around and working in the 1950s! The influence of such organisations as the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings and the Art Workers’ Guild continues to be profound. The Weald & Downland Museum with its emphasis on traditional materials, traditional techniques and even traditional tools in its collections is almost the perfect place to study and reflect on these issues.

This day school will look at houses in the Weald as homes in which families lived and worked. It will consider both the continuity and changes which occurred from the late Medieval period, through transitional stages to the early-modern era. It will place the houses in both their historical context and landscape setting, within the various settlement types of the region — rural, village and town. Finally, it will consider how the external appearance of homes have changed over the period and, in this respect, will bring the story up to the present day. A visit to selected houses on the museum site will be included.
