The Crafts Study Centre at the Surrey Institute of Art & Design, University College, Farnham is fortunate to hold the major collection and archive of Phyllis Barron (1890-1964) and Dorothy Larcher (1884-1952), two of the leading hand-blockprinters of textiles working in Britain in the 1920s and '30s (No. 1). The furnishing and dress materials which this unique partnership produced first in London and then in the Cotswolds are noted for their innovative designs printed in subtle colours on quality materials. Most of Barron and Larcher's work was presented to the collection by Robin and Heather Tanner, two founders of the Crafts Study Centre, since Robin had been left all their work on Phyllis Barron's death in 1964.
