William Morris is celebrated as a designer and craftsman, who as a young man decided to dedicate his life to art to counter the ugly industrial world he saw around him.
He was a deeply reflective man and held passionate views on the quality of life which should be available to all, expressed in his considerable output of poetry and political writings. This lecture draws together the work of the designer and artist and Morris’s own life experience with his views on ‘the art of life’.
Dr Antony Buxton is a Cultural Historian and draws on his own experience as a furniture maker and conservator.
