End Date: 1 April 1938
Type: Lecture and discussion
Description: Garbe read paper and showed slides and photographs. 'He condemned the modern tendency towards the sensational and spoke in favour of good craftsmanship'. Bayes spoke post-interval, followed by A. Miller, W. Marsden, H. Stabler, C. Thomas, F. Emanuel, E. Wallcousins and G. R. Hayes 'bringing to an end an evening of controversial and vital interest' (Fifty-fifth annual report of the committee of the Art Workers' Guild, 1939, p. 12).
Policy: 'Founded in 1883, with the object of bringing into closer union the workers in various arts and crafts - architects, painters, designers of all kinds, sculptors and wood-carvers, metal-workers, goldsmiths, and many others - chiefly by evening meetings and discussions on different lines and methods in art. Meetings are held fortnightly, when papers are read and their subjects illustrated as fully as possible. Visitors must be introduced by a member' (Year's Art, 1913, pp. 169-70).
