An often neglected corner of British heritage within the arts, the Tate’s new exhibition seeks to ‘exemplify the energy, variety and idiosyncrasies within British Folk Art”.

Steeped in tradition and often created by self-taught artists and artisans, the often humble but always remarkable objects in this exhibition include everything from ships’ figureheads to quirky shop signs, Toby jugs to elaborately crafted quilts.”

The exhibition runs until the 31st August 2014.
