Leicester Designers

In addition to Ernest Gimson, a number of other Leicester designers and artists contributed to the City’s Arts & Crafts traditions.

Their work is represented in the collections of Leicester Arts and Museums Service or, in the case of George Bankart, featured in the houses designed by Gimson locally.

George Bankart trained as an architect but became a specialist in ornamental plaster and lead work.
