The Victorian House of Arts and Crafts

Described Video:
In a timely social experiment that echoes current social and environmental concerns, six modern day craftspeople are sent back in time to live in a remote country house where they immerse themselves in the idealistic dreams of Arts and Crafts visionaries William Morris, John Ruskin and Gertrude Jekyll. Cut off from modern life, they must forego technology to breathe new life into the property by decorating and furnishing four key rooms, with everything made by hand from scratch. But will 21st century sensibilities crumble under the reality and pressures of 19th century life?
