In the early 20th century the village of Deerfield supported a thriving Arts and Crafts community of metalsmiths, potters, furniture makers, photographers, embroiderers, and basket makers. Frequently inspired by objects from New England's past, these artisans combined older designs and techniques in new and creative ways to sell to a 20th-century audience. Several of the Deerfield artisans, who were predominantly women, achieved national recognition for their work. This exhibition will feature more than 25 objects from Historic Deerfield's collections and will include objects made by Madeline Yale Wynne, Cornelius Kelley, the Deerfield Society of Blue and White Needlework, and the Pocumtuck Basket Makers.
