Dates of existence



Marjorie Elizabeth Robley was born in 1894 and resided at Thirlestane, Helensburgh, during her time as a student of The Glasgow School of Art.  Her tuition was subsidised by Dumbarton Local Authority throughout this period. Robley had a lengthy academic career at The School, attending for a total of seven years between 1914 and 1922. There is a break in her education for the academic year commencing 1918, although the reasons for this are unknown. Robley attended as a day student throughout her time at The School. She initially enrolled as a student of Drawing and Painting, however she switched focus to Design after one year. Robley specialised in Metal Work, which likely included repoussé and gold and silversmith work. Robley was under the tutelage of P. Wylie Davidson, the instructor for Design and Decorative Arts at this time. Whether Marjorie Robley continued her artistic ambitions after her studies is unknown.
