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 period and is gathering together information such as publications, photographs and drawings relating to this extraordinary period of creativity in Surrey.

The Society was formed in 1996 to act as a forum for those who share this interest and enthusiasm. Members enjoy a programme of lectures usually held at the Watts Gallery, where we have met since the Society's founding, study days and visits 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 wish to.
