The Voysey Society has been founded to celebrate the life and work of architect and designer Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857-1941), one of the leading figures in the Arts and Crafts movement.
The Society’s aims are to:
- assist in protecting and preserving the original character and amenities of Voysey’s designs, buildings and other objects;
- inform and educate the public about Voysey's work so as to increase its appreciation and understanding of the design philosophies and qualities involved;
- undertake and promote research in connection with Voysey’s work and related matters, and promote the dissemination of the results;
- focus on buildings and objects designed by Voysey which are considered to be at risk;
- provide assistance to the owners of Voysey buildings, furniture, textiles and other artefacts in respect of fundraising, conservation, repair and maintenance, and sympathetic use.
