This course will explore the innovative contribution made by pioneering women designers working within British Industry during the twentieth century and how, despite being predominately a role for men, they were able to achieve equal status and recognition for their contribution in fashion, wallpaper, textiles, glass, ceramics and many other areas of design. We will explore the changes in society, the impact of the Second World War and the recognition of the important role of the designer for British industry. The course will focus on designers including Lucienne Day, Marion Dorn, Enid Marx, Susie Cooper and Jessie Tait alongside several other less known designers
