A New Road: from Morris and Ruskin to Marthe Armitage
September 15, 2019 15.00-16.00 at St Michael and All Angels Church, Chiswick
We are delighted to take part in this panel discussion at the wonderful Chiswick Book Festival!
In John Ruskin’s 200th anniversary year, this event will celebrate those who put design and beauty at the heart of the industrial process, from Ruskin and William Morris to the wallpaper designer and printmaker Marthe Armitage, past Master of the Art Workers’ Guild (of which Morris was master in 1892).
Armitage has lived in Chiswick most of her life; Morris lived here for six years before moving to Hammersmith.
With Owen Holland of The William Morris Society (William Morris’s Utopianism), Professor Robert Hewison of the Ruskin Centre (Ruskin and His Contemporaries), Marthe Armitage and Alison Harley (Editor, The Making of Marthe Armitage: Artist and Patternmaker).
Chaired by Torin Douglas.
Supported by Morris & Co, William Morris Society and Chiswick Auctions.
