STUDIO-TALK.

(From our own Correspondents.)

LONDON.—The Institute of the City
and Guilds of London held its
annual exhibition of technological
work at the Imperial Institute during
June. The exhibition showed, in
some measure, the result of the schemes that have
been set on foot for rectifying the insufficient in-
struction given to present-day apprentices. The
Institute and its affiliated establishments seek to
improve the craftsmanship and technology of
such varied callings as stone-carving, photo-
process work, silver and gold smithery, diamond
mounting, sheet-metal work, wood work, cabinet
making, book-finishing, weaving, painting and
decorating, and their allied crafts. Their atten-
tion is especially directed towards assisting those
craftsmen who, working at crafts under the
cognomen “trade,” have, till now, swamped the
market with vulgarity and bad workmanship.

LIVERPOOL.—The first Congress of the
“ National Association for the Ad-
vancement of Art and its Application
to Industry ” was held in Liverpool in
the year 1888. At that meeting the
writer urged the establishment of a School of
Architecture and Applied Arts in connection with
University College in this city. The idea was
warmly taken up by the late Philip Rathbone, and
through his energetic and persistent advocacy it is
mainly owing that six years later the first school of
the kind in this country came into being. Since
then, under the directorship of Prof. F. M. Simpson
and his able assistants, the class entries have in-

We give illustrations
of two of the exhibits—
an unfinished frame
which displayed sound
technique combined with
sympathy for the design,
and was obviously the
work of an accom-
plished craftsman ; and
a necklet with pendant
attached, which was
in many respects admir-
able.
