Event description
Helen Elletson, curator at Emery Walker's will explore the arts and crafts embroidery designs of May Morris.

About this Event

Overshadowed for many years by her more famous father, May Morris is now beginning to gain the recognition she deserves as being an incredibly talented craftswoman in her own right. Teacher, lecturer, artist, jeweller, editor and designer, May was accomplished in a wide range of crafts, but it is her work as an embroiderer that is considered to be her greatest achievement. May's knowledge of needlework, her talent for designing and her brilliance with the needle led to raising the status of embroidery to fine art. This talk will focus on May's beautiful designs and completed embroideries, demonstrating why she should be regarded as one of the most significant artists of the arts and crafts movement.

Helen Elletson is a Senior Curator at Emery Walker's House and also Curator of Research and Development at the William Morris Society.

This is a live talk on Zoom. Once you have booked your ticket, you will be sent the joining instructions.
