Coffee with a Curator – online talk

June 8, 2021 11.00-11.30

The Gardens of William Morris

Join Curator Helen Elletson to explore some of the fascinating objects in The William Morris Society’s collection

In celebration of the Open Garden Squares event, this month’s talk will highlight the varied and beautiful gardens of William Morris’s homes. Beginning with descriptions of Morris’s childhood gardens, we’ll look at the inspiration behind the planting schemes at Red House and discover how Morris’s particular approach to design was reflected in different ways at Kelmscott Manor and Kelmscott House.
Please join us as we look at the beauty of Morris’s gardens through photographs, contemporary descriptions and Morris’s own words, alongside key objects from the Society’s collection that reflect Morris’s innovative views.
We have a limited number of tickets for this event. If you make a booking but find you are unable to attend, please cancel your booking to allow another person to attend the talk. Thank you.
