Event Details

This new exhibition illustrates the rich and little-known story of William Morris’ deep connections to the Thames. The exhibition brings together a unique selection of works, with loans from the V&A, The William Morris Gallery, British Library, and many more. Highlights include Morris’ Thames series of textiles alongside his original hand-drawn designs, a signed copy of News from Nowhere, and his personal fishing tackle and spectacles. Materials from the Morris & Co. workshop illustrate the production process, while socialist pamphlets that Morris penned and published demonstrate his deep commitment to socialism in later life.  Step from the exhibition straight out onto the riverbank and find your own earthly paradise.
