Event description

Description

Welcome and guided tour at 5.30pm.

Join us to celebrate the opening of May Morris: Art & Life. This landmark exhibition explores the life and work of May Morris, the younger daughter of William Morris and one of the most significant artists of the British Arts and Crafts movement.

View the exhibition over a glass of wine and find out about taster workshops for schools in weaving and embroidery. Older students will explore how contemporary artists have adopted these traditional crafts into fine art practice, for example through Craftivism. Plus learn about our new Women in Art talk and draw session, free for secondary schools. This 90-minute workshop looks at the role of women in art from the Renaissance to the present day using May Morris's career as a case study.

May Morris: Art & Life has been funded through an Art Happens crowdfunding campaign supported by Art Fund. Thank you to all those who donated to our campaign for making the exhibition possible.
