   Description   This resource is a guide to the printed, painted and resist-dyed textiles held in the Crafts Study Centre collection at the Surrey Institute of Art & Design, University College, Farnham. It contains 170 images and concentrates on the work of Phyllis Barron (1890-1964) and Dorothy Larcher (1882-1952), two of the leading hand-blockprinters of textiles working in Britain in the 1920s and 30s. The Centre has the largest holding of their work in a public collection. A source of inspiration for many today, Barron and Larchers textiles are looked at in detail, major commissions highlighted and the role played by galleries and exhibitions in promoting their work discussed.
