Ann Macbeth

Ann Macbeth was a British embroiderer, designer and author, a member of the Glasgow Movement and an associate of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. She was an active suffragette. Macbeth was born in the Bolton suburb of Halliwell, studied at the Glasgow School of Art, her father was Norman Macbeth and she came from an artistic background: her uncles included the artists Robert Walker Macbeth and Henry Macbeth-Raeburn and her paternal grandfather was the portraitist Norman Macbeth. In 1902, she participated in the'Scottish Section' of the First International Exhibition of Modern Decorative Art in Turin where she won a silver medal for the design of the Glasgow Coat of Arms on one side of the banner presented to Professor Rucker of the British Association for the Advancement of Science. After completing her studies at the Glasgow School of Art in 1901 Macbeth became assistant to Jessie Newbery and her striking embroidery work was given regular coverage in The Studio. In 1906 she started teaching metalwork at the Glasgow School of Art.

There she taught bookbinding from 1907 to 1911, ceramic decoration from 1912 onwards. In 1908 she succeeded Jessie Newbery as Head of the Needlework and Embroidery section at the Glasgow School of Art, in 1912 she became the Director of Studies in the Needlework-Decorative Arts Studio. In 1911 she took part in the planning for the Scottish Exhibition of National History and Industry, sitting on the committee of the Decorative and Fine Arts Section. Together with the educational psychologist Margaret Swanson Macbeth published the textbook Educational Needlecraft in 1911; the textbook won international acclaim and influenced the teaching of needlecraft. It remained on the Scottish school syllabus until the 1950s; the embroidery classes at the Glasgow School of Art were open to the community as a whole. Saturday classes for schoolteachers led to a certificate by the Scottish Education Department. In her teaching and publications Macbeth spread the radical approach to design of the Glasgow Movement and put into practice the ideas of the Arts and Crafts movement.

She elevated the status of home dressmaking and encouraged women to create their own individualistic clothing. She brought designed dresses within reach of women with modest means by advocating the use of “humble materials” such as cotton and crash. In her publications Macbeth encouraged a new generation of designer-craftswomen, discouraging copying of patterns. From 1920 onwards Macbeth taught handicrafts at the Women's Institute and participated in programmes to alleviate local economic hardship. In her book Embroidered and Laced Leatherwork Macbeth lamented that women produced crafts in their spare time and devalued their work by undercharging for it so that the cost of the materials was covered. Through her teaching work at the Women's Institute Macbeth aimed to generate a means of livelihood for craftworkers by creating regional styles of work. Macbeth designed the banner for the 1908 Edinburgh march of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies. In October 1909 the Glasgow branch of the Women's Social and Political Union, the militant wing of the campaign for women's suffrage in the United Kingdom, was presented with an embroidered banner designed by Macbeth.

For a 1910 exhibition Macbeth designed a linen quilt with the embroidered signatures of the 80 suffragette hunger strikers. Aside from working as a suffrage banner maker Macbeth was a member of the Women's Social and Political Union and she engaged in militant action; as a result, she was imprisoned although, as she does not appear in court or newspaper reports, she appears to have done so under a false name. In a letter to the Secretary of the Glasgow School of Arts from May 1912 Macbeth thanked him for his "kind letters" and wrote "I am still much less vigorous than I anticipated... after a fortnight's solitary imprisonment with forcible feedings". After the 1912 prison stay she needed several months care as a "semi-invalid". Macbeth became a renowned designer, her prolific output included bookbindings and designs for carpet manufacturers Alexander Morton and Co. Donald Bros. of Dundee, Liberty's & Knox's Linen Thread Company. For Liberty, Macbeth provided Art Nouveau style embroidery designs that featured in the firm's mail order catalogues until the outbreak of the First World War.

Her designs were sold by Liberty as iron-on transfers for the embroidery of dresses and furniture. In 1920 Macbeth moved to Patterdale in Cumbria, she remained a visiting lecturer at the Glasgow School of Arts until her retirement in 1928. In Patterdale she continued to produce needleworks large decorative designs, produced church hangings and vestments, she decorated china and fired her own china in a kiln she had built herself. She devised a simple method of rug-weaving, published in her book Country Woman’s Rug in 1929, she argued that machines would democratise design and that craftworkers who understood the workings of machines could achieve high artistic quality. In the summers Macbeth lived on a crag in Helvelly in a self-designed house and captured the local hillsides in embroidery. Outside the house she dyed her own yarn in pits. St. Patrick's Church in Patterdale, Cumbria houses some of her embroideries. Examples of her work were on exhibition at Miss Cranston's tea-rooms in Glasgow over a long period.

She embroidered a frontal for the communion table of Glasgow Cathedral. A range of her work, both in embroidery and in ceramics, was on display in Kelvingrove Museum in its exhibition Making the Glasgow Style from 30 March to 14 August 2018; the Studio contains many images of her work. Macbeth published six books on

Matthew 5:41

Matthew 5:41 is the forty-first verse of the fifth chapter of the Gospel of Matthew in the New Testament and is part of the Sermon on the Mount. This is the third verse of the antithesis on the commandment: "Eye for an eye". In the King James Version of the Bible the text reads: And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain; the World English Bible translates the passage as: Whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. For additional translations see Matthew 5:41; the word here translated as compel, angareuo, is a Persian loan word, a technical term for the Roman practice of requisitioning local goods or labour. Schweizer notes that it refers to the power of the Romans to demand that a local serve as a guide or porter. At Matthew 27:32 Simon of Cyrene will be forced by such rules to carry Jesus' cross, the only other time in the New Testament the word translated as compel is used; the Zealots loathed this practice, their refusal to participate in such tasks was an important part of their philosophy and a cause of the Great Jewish Revolt.

According to R. T. France, these commands would have shocked the Jewish audience as Jesus' response to the Roman occupation was starkly different from the other Jewish activists of the period. Jesus says nothing about the propriety of such demands, Schweizer notes that Jesus accepts it as fact. Thomas Aquinas wrote that this verse implies that it is reasonable to follow laws that are unjust, but argued that laws that are unconscionable must not be obeyed; the word here translated as mile refers to the Roman definition of 1000 paces shorter than a modern mile. The mile was a Roman unit of measure, locally the stadion was used to measure length. Miles would only have been used by the imperial government and the local occupying forces, which further links this verse with imperial repression; this verse is the origin of the English phrase "going the extra mile," which means to do more than is needed. See The Extra Mile for its usage in popular culture
