"A Crucible of Creativity" is curated by Naomi Ayre, Librarian of the North Devon Athenaeum. It shines a light on the school which, during the 19th and early 20th centuries, trained many significant artists and makers in the district.


The exhibition is a Creative North Devon project and includes images, original documents and examples of work made by students and teachers at the School of Art, including the internationally significant architect and teacher William Richard Lethaby and the weaver and dyer Ethel Mairet.


Entry to "A Crucible of Creativity" is free and is taking place in the Community Gallery.
