Mansion House York

Crafty Women In The Eighteenth Century
📅 Thursday 7 March 2019
York Mansion House
Join us for a drink and evening lecture that will illuminate the world of Georgian making and how women used arts and crafts not only to decorate their homes, but also as a source of income. It centres on the fascinating story of Hannah Robertson, who claimed to be the illegitimate granddaughter of Charles II. Robertson made crafts and also taught other women how to make them, through her school and her popular instructional manual. The Schools of Arts. She also offered lessons at boarding schools in York. For Robertson, craft provided an escape from the strictures placed on Georgian women. Notably it allowed her to thrive and succeed in a period in which women were dependent financially dependent on men. Robertson knew all too well the problems of unreliable suitors, husbands and sons, but craft offered her a creative outlet and financial independence.

Dr Chloe Wigston Smith is Senior Lecturer in the Department of English and Related Literature, and the Centre for Eighteenth-Century Studies at the University of York.
