Alan Powers: Enid Marx: A Life of Pattern – Thursday 12 September


Thursday 12 September
Drinks from 7pm, lecture starts 7.30pm
£12 inc. entrance to the museum & a glass of wine

Enid Marx (1902-1998) crossed the lines between craft and industrial design. Having made her name with subtly coloured but lively block printed textiles in the 1920s and exhibited with studio potters, she became an advocate for better quality goods and better design education.

Alan Powers knew Enid Marx in the last ten years of her life and in 2018 published the book Enid Marx, the pleasures of pattern (Lund Humphries), coinciding with an exhibition at the House of Illustration, London. Drawing on Marx’s extensive archive, the book recreates a remarkable career not only in designing but teaching and advocacy, including the books by Marx and her friend Margaret Lambert on English Popular Art.
