    1. The Arts and Crafts movement originated in Great Britain, then influenced other countries in Europe, after which it emerged in North America and Japan (in Japan is known as the Mingei movement). Therefore, Arts and Craft is an international movement in the decorative and fine arts that took place between about 1880 and 1920. This movement stood for traditional craftsmanship, using simple forms, and often used medieval, romantic, or folk styles of decoration.

    2. The Art and Craft movement originated in decorative arts, such as architecture and interior design (mostly in churches), but by the end of the 19th century this movement influenced and was found in painting, sculpture, graphics, illustration, book making and photography, furniture and woodwork, stained glass, leatherwork, lacemaking, embroidery, rug making and weaving, jewelry and metalwork, enameling and ceramics.

    3. The Arts and Crafts movement’s set of principles and attitudes emphasize the interaction of art and society which is set in the mind of the artist or craftsman. Generally, this movement was led by political ideals, the desire to create something new and nostalgia for earlier styles of architecture. A. W. N. Purgin advocated the truth to material, structure and function as one of the main principles of Art and Craft movements.
