After Gordon Russell introduced Robert Welch to the Old Slik Mill in Chipping Campden in 1955 the young designer set up his studio and workshop in this important building with links to the Arts & Crafts Movement.
Pioneers of accessible design the two designers championed affordable quality pieces for the home - many of which are now considered icons of 20th century design. Both men were appointed Royal Designers for Industry.
This exhibition, which runs from 1 November to 18th December 2016, explores the first years of Robert Welch's design career and, using objects from the archive, models, prototypes and finished pieces, the display considers the relationship in his design work between innovation and tradition.
