Beyond 17th - 18th Century

Period Furniture

The Arts & Crafts Movement

A Medieval Gothic Revival

by Jim Allen

As mentioned in earlier articles, this column is dedicated to all woodworking adventures – furniture, tools, jigs, and more.  This month’s Featured Piece is not a piece of furniture per se.  The article, however, is an adventure – an adventure in the history of the Arts and Crafts Movement and its influence into the 20th century.  The article was written by Jim Allen and previously published last spring in the GNHW Journal.

Jim describes the essential components of a movement – where does it come from, what is it, and what does it lead to.  The article discusses its proponents and what drove the movement into existence.  Applying this approach to the Arts and Crafts Movement, this article makes for an excellent read.
