Biography

Charles Robert Ashbee was born in London, the son of a prosperous city merchant. Educated at Wellington College and King's College, Cambridge, he was articled to G. F. Bodley. While working in Bodley's office Ashbee lived at Toynbee Hall, the pioneer University Settlement in Whitechapel where he initiated classes in art and craft which become the nucleus of the School of Handicraft (1887) and the Guild of Handicraft (1888). The Guild is now chiefly known for the metalwork and jewellery designed by Ashbee himself, and for the furniture made for the Grand Duke of Hesse in collaboration with the designer M. H. Baillie Scott in the workshops at Essex House in the Mile End Road.

In 1902 Ashbee undertook his grand experiment and removed the entire Guild to Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds. For a while the Guild's affairs prospered, but from 1905 the receipts from the craftwork fell off disastrously and by 1907 the company was forced into voluntary liquidation. Ashbee continued throughout this period with his architectural practice, which brought in a number of decorotive commissions to the Guild. He designed two groups of houses in Cheyne Walk, Chelsea and a number of squat, square houses in the country, some of which feuture in A Book of Cottages and Little Houses.

    (這篇有許多地名與人名,為了怕偏離原意,留住不翻)

    Charles Robert Ashlee 於倫敦出生,父親是該市一位成功的商人。

    他在劍橋的 Wellington College 和 King's College就讀,並經推介至G. F. Bodley 處上班。

    當他在Bodley處工作時,他住在Toynbee Hall,該處是Whitechapel居領先地位的大學城;他在那兒開始教授藝術與手工藝的課程,而這些課程後來演變為手工藝學院(於1887)與手工藝協會(於1888)。此時手工藝協會早已因為Ashlee優秀的金屬工藝與珠寶設計以及與設計師 M. H. Baillie Scott 在 Mile End Road 的 Essex House工坊中為了Grand Duke of Hesse所作的家具而聞名。

    1902年 Ashlee 開始他人生中最大的實驗,並將整個公會移到 Cotswolds 的 Chipping Campden小鎮。這給公會帶來了短暫的榮景;但自 1905年後手工藝的訂單急遽大幅衰減,到1907年時公會便不得不宣佈自行清算。Ashlee 在這段時間內繼續著他的建築嘗試,這也帶給公會好幾筆相當可觀的收入。他在 Chelsea 的 Cheyne Walk 設計了兩組住宅群;並在郊區興建了幾棟低矮方正的房舍,有些並被收錄於「A Book of Cottages and Little Houses」一書中。
