The Arts and Crafts movement was an international trend in the decorative and fine arts that began in Britain and flourished in Europe and North America between about 1880 and 1920, emerging in Japan in the 1920s as the Mingei movement. It stood for traditional craftsmanship using simple forms, and often used medieval, romantic, or folk styles of decoration.

The Arts and Crafts was a protest movement, galvanising artists, architects and tradesmen from the 1880s onwards. More surprisingly, the movement also flourished in the cities with important groups in Birmingham, Sheffield, Manchester and Glasgow.
