William Morris Society
Arts & Textiles Tour
10.30am – 1.00pm, Monday 2 April
The Coach House, Kelmscott House, 26 Upper Mall, Hammersmith W6 9TA
The William Morris Society is offering an opportunity to get up close to items that are rarely on show to the public, with a specialist tour of both the Society’s premises and nearby Emery Walker’s House. The tour will explore the Arts & Crafts textiles in both collections, including exquisite examples of May Morris’s work. It will start at the William Morris Society, where you will meet textiles and embroidery expert Sally Roberson for an introduction to the William Morris Society’s textile collection. Then there will be tea/coffee and biscuits before a short walk along the river to Emery Walker’s House (7 Hammersmith Terrace) where you will be able to view and hear about the textiles in situ at this recently restored Arts & Crafts gem. Due to space constraints at Emery Walker’s House, places are strictly limited to 8 per tour.
