This exhibition, which includes copies of work produced by these women, celebrates particularly the class of 1939 and draws a direct link to the Arts and Crafts Movement of decorative design through the work they produced. 

It also highlights the Junior School, a forgotten aspect of the Canterbury School of Fine Arts and Canterbury's history.

The work includes drawings, calligraphy, embroidery and metalwork, some of which shows a close connection with the Arts and Crafts Movement.

The students were taught by graduates of the Canterbury College School of Art, including Florence Atkins, Rata Lovell-Smith, Louise Henderson and Bill Sutton.

You are also warmly invited to the launch of the publication associated with the exhibition on 29 Oct, 5pm - 6pm, where writer Janet Abbott will talk about these women and their work.
