    William Morris Gallery – newly refreshed!

    williamMorrisDesignPic4The William Morris Gallery in Waltham Forest has a new web site. You can see it here. Exhibitions and hands-on family activities.

    The William Morris Gallery – in Walthamstow, London, the place of Morris’ birth – has been transformed to create a new world-class destination and international centre of excellence for the study of Morris, where visitors can enjoy the most intense and personal encounter with one of the foremost creative artists and original thinkers of the nineteenth century.

    The new Waltham Forest web site for the gallery is a triumph. With information, images and some great links to a William Morris Twitter feed and a gallery Facebook page too.

    Located near Lloyd Park in Forest Road, the gallery is open Wednesday to Sunday and admission is free. (The major building refurbishment was funded by the Borough and the Heritage Lottery Fund).

    Whether you are interested in art and design, in exploring the history of the Borough through Morris’s work or just to visit and have a cup of tea in the refreshed cafe, then the gallery website is a great learning place to start with.

    You can find more information about William Morris and his impact on art and culture here, courtesy of Wikipedia…
