Ellen S DICK

1873—1954

Ellen was closely involved in the Newlyn Industrial Class Project as an assistant teacher and organiser, and initiated the Newlyn Embroidery Classes with her husband Reginald Thomas DICK.

Mr and Mrs Dick were well liked and obviously did much for the creative life of the community. It is believed they came from Birmingham (where they may have both studied at the School of Art) to Cornwall for the sake of Reginald's health.
