Private Curatorial Tour of the William Morris Gallery
Guided Tour | William Morris Gallery
Thursday 8 January 2015 - 11:45
Two tours available - the first at 11.45am, the second at 2.00pm
The William Morris Gallery is the only public gallery devoted to the life and legacy of this renowned Arts and Crafts designer, craftsman, socialist thinker, printer and publisher. It is housed in a very fine Georgian building, once Morris's family home, and was extensively refurbished two years ago. On this private tour, you will see a wide range of his work, from tapestries and furniture to ceramic tiles, wallpapers, embroidery and paintings - as well as many examples of works by fellow artists such as Edward Burne-Jones, May Morris, Walter Crane and Charles Voysey. The Gallery also houses works by Sir Frank Brangwyn (who was apprenticed to Morris) and the progressive designer Arthur Mackmurdo.
This event has been organised by the Kent Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
