May Morris

Art and Life

Coming soon

7 October 2017 to 28 January 2018

  • Open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am - 5pm; free

We're asking you to help crowdfund this landmark exhibition on the life and work of May Morris, the younger daughter of William Morris and a central figure in the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century.

While we own a number of key works by May, important examples are held elsewhere, including the National Museums of Scotland and Wales, regional museums and galleries, National Trust properties and university collections. If the campaign is successful, we can bring these works together for the first time, giving an unprecedented insight into May’s extraordinary life and career. The funds will also support vital conservation work on fragile objects included in the exhibition.
