The Arts and Crafts movement was started in Britain in the mid-1800’s, in response to the Industrial Revolution. As more and more of Great Britain became industrialized, a group of people started a movement that was the antithesis of it. A social and political movement, it also influenced the arts. The Arts and Crafts movement emphasized design and hand craftsmanship as well as the utility of an item.
