Just before Christmas I visted the Willaim Morris Gallery to see my neckpiece in the exhibition "Inspired by Morris". I was very happy to see they had placed my work next to a bag embroidered by May Morris.
The exhibition showing my neckpiece has now ended. The gallery has a new temporary exhibition starting on the 2nd Feb titled "Morris, Anti-Scrape and the Preservation of Heritage"
"The William Morris Gallery is the only public Gallery devoted to William Morris - designer, craftsman, writer, socialist and conservationist - and displays an internationally important collection illustrating his life, achievements and influence.
William Morris was born in Walthamstow in 1834. The Gallery is delightfully housed in the 18th Century Water House, Morris' family home from 1848 to 1856, and set in Lloyd Park in Walthamstow."
