William Morris Gallery, Walthamstow
Thursday 16 November 2017

William Morris, the famous Victorian textile designer and architect associated with the Arts & Crafts Movement, was born in Walthamstow, Essex, to a wealthy middle-class family in 1834.  He studied Classics at Oxford and then trained as an architect and went on to develop close friendships with Pre-Raphaelite artists Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Neo-Gothic architect Philip Webb.  In 1847 the family “downsized” to Water House which is today the newly refurbished William Morris Gallery. 

We will have a guided tour led by the curator followed by lunch and independent viewing of the exhibits.
