This display presented rarely seen works on paper by Winfred Gill (1891–1981), the unsung heroine of the Omega Workshops. As well as producing designs for the collaborative, she also played a key role in running the Workshops.

A selection of Gill’s imaginative toy designs, including enchanting dancers and lively musicians, were shown alongside a group of newly acquired prints and demonstrate her boldly expressive style.
