This exhibition explores the work and ideas of the great Victorian artist-craftsman, designer, poet and visionary thinker, William Morris. His concept of art for the people, and his highly original vision of a new form of society in which art could flourish has reverberated through the centuries and still affects us today. The exhibition features portraits of Morris, his contemporaries and his successors including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, Bernard Leach and Terence Conran together with objects such as books, furniture, jewellery and ceramics.

Please bring your Membership card with you to ensure entry.
