Emery Walker and the Arts and Crafts Movement in Hammersmith
By Julie Ashdown, OBE
English engraver, photographer and printer, Emery Walker was a friend of William Morris and a key player in the Arts and Crafts movement. His house in Hammersmith Terrace was opened last year to huge acclaim, with sell-out number of visitors. Hammersmith Terrace was a particular ‘hot-spot’ for members of the Arts and Crafts movement, including William Morris. This talk will cover Emery Walker’s life, the house and highlights of the contents, as well as the artistic community that lived along the Thames in that area.
Julie Ashdown OBE is a retired diplomat and diversity adviser who is a volunteer at the Emery Walker House.
