Phyllis Barron (1890-1964) and Dorothy Larcher (1884-1952) met in the Brook Street Gallery shortly after the First World War and went on to form a lifelong partnership, during which they designed and made a range of handblock printed textiles using predominantly natural dyes. Their work was exhibited in respected Arts and Crafts Galleries such as The Three Shields Gallery in Kensington Church Street, The Little Gallery run by Muriel Rose, The New Hand Workers Gallery, The Mayor Gallery and the Red Rose Gallery in Manchester.
This art book is a poetic representation of their creative partnership and lives together, set alongside many of the textiles and the creative environments in which they worked.
