The Finest and the Best: The Rusland Movement at Cartmel Priory


From an Arts and Crafts Movement masterpiece, to medieval majesty; we’re delighted to announce, following the huge success of our six months showing at Blackwell, the Arts and Crafts House, we have just launched our inaugural annual design event to be held at Cartmel Priory. The Finest and The Best features all pieces that visitors saw at Blackwell alongside some new work being displayed for the first time.

Also on display and available to purchase is a collection of new work from The Rusland Movement Artist in Residence, Tina Balmer and a selection of soft furnishings, designed and made by our new soft furnishings and upholstery department.

The exhibition will continue to celebrate the impact the rich local history of art, design and craftsmanship has had upon the designer makers of today, urging them forward in creating contemporary and meaningful work of their own.

Open from 10am – 5pm Monday – Saturday and from just after midday until 2.30pm on Sunday until and including 29th August and reopening on 11th September until the 20th November.

We do hope you will be able to visit.
