The Guild and School of Handicraft was established as a workshop and training school for silversmiths in Whitechapel, London in 1888 by the architect, artist and designer Charles Robert (C.R.) Ashbee (1863-1942). The Guild relocated to Chipping Campden in the English Cotswolds in 1902 and closed in 1907. During its short history, the Guild had a profound influence on the Arts and Crafts movement not, only in Britain, but in the USA, Continental Europe, and elsewhere. The Transactions, of which this was the only volume published, contains 'A Short History of the Guild & School of Handicraft' by C.R. Ashbee; and articles by William Holman Hunt, Lawrence Alma Tadema, Henry Holiday, W.B. Richmond, Thomas Stirling Lee, Edward Prioleau Warren, G.F. Watts, Walter Crane, and Giovanni Udine

An endeavour towards the teaching of John Ruskin and William Morris. Being a brief account of the work, the aims, and the principles of the Guild of Handicraft in East London by C. R Ashbee( Book )

2 editions published in 1901 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Arts and Crafts Movement of the 19th and early 20th centuries sought to create new and more beautiful environments in the face of the bleak industrialization then sweeping Europe and the United States. While stressing fine craftsmanship wrought with honest, naturally attractive building materials, proponents of the movement looked to the teachings of Ruskin and English designer William Morris, who both stressed the virtues of handcraft over machine production. Influenced by Ruskin and Morris, English designer and Arts and Crafts pioneer C.R. Ashbee founded the Guild and School of Handicraft, an East London cooperative that aimed to "seek not only to set a higher standard of craftsmanship, but at the same time, and in so doing, to protect the status of the craftsman." In this beautifully decorated volume, C.R. Ashbee provides a brief history of the organization and explains the influence of the two great 19th-century aesthetic thinkers
