Women's Arts and Crafts Exhibition

The Womens’ Arts and Crafts Exhibition at Endcliffe Hall, Sheffield, attracted a great deal of attraction. It was opened on the first day by the Countess Fitzwilliam, and on the second by Lady Wilson.

Marquetry and metal work, some of which was in aluminium, was shown, and the beaten clock faces that have been in evidence at several recent exhibitions were also displayed here. One of the most interesting features was the loan collection of antique needlework. The fire-screen worked by Mary Queen of Scots, a silk valance by the same hand, and some fourteenth century embroidery, Stuart embroidery, and many other priceless pieces of art were on show. The exhibition did great credit to the association, and marks a notable advance in women's success in the arts and crafts.

The Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society will hold their next display in the New Gallery, beginning in the first week of January next. The exhibition will be on the lines of previous ones, but only artists and craftsmen of the United Kingdom will be allowed to show, because reasons of space make it necessary to exclude foreign exhibitors.
