Today is the Birthday of the father of the Arts and Crafts Movement, William Morris. English textile designer, artist, writer, and socialist we have a huge range of examples of his work in our Collection.
Celebrate his contribution with a visit to the Museum this weekend. Visit our Headley Trust Gallery to see this sumptuous design for bathroom tiles, commissioned by the architect of Membland Hall in Devon and made in 1876. Then stop by the cafe for an afternoon tea in our William Morris designed Morris room.
