The Society for the Arts and Crafts Movement in Surrey exists to celebrate
and foster interest in all forms of art, architecture and design of ‘the
Arts and Crafts Era’ - the period from 1860 to 1930. The Society is
concerned with the conservation and awareness of works associated with the

to places of Arts and Crafts interest and receive the Society's newsletters,
issued twice a year. New members are always welcome and there are plenty
of opportunities to assist with the Society's projects for those who
