He received some artistic training from his father, and later from Arthur Heygate Mackmurdo and in the workshops of William Morris, although he was mainly self-taught. Brangwyn is best known for the British Empire Panels (1925–1932) which were originally intended for the Royal Gallery at the House of Lords at Westminster, but the House of Lords refused them because they were "too colourful and lively" for the location. During this period he also produced ceramic designs which were carried out in the Clarice Cliff and Royal Doulton workshops.
