24th March 2014
Today is the anniversary of William Morris’s birth. Morris was born on the 24th March 1834 in Walthamstow, which at the time was a village outside London. Morris died at the age of 62 on the 3rd October, 1896. 2014 will be the 180th anniversary of Morris’s birth and it is amazing to consider the impact that William Morris and his associates had, and continue to have today upon the world of arts and crafts in Britain and around the world.
A special thank you to the William Morris society for supplying this image.
