Textiles are the most varied and influential aspect of William Morris’s work. From intricate embroideries and sumptuous tapestries to the iconic printed cottons that still adorn our homes and bodies, Morris's genius for textile design was matched only by his deep knowledge of historic fabrics. Join Senior Curator Roisin Inglesby as she explores the inspiration behind Morris’s textiles and the techniques he used to create diverse and beautiful designs.
