The 160th anniversary of the start of the Arts and Crafts Movement is in 2020 and what better way to acknowledge this milestone than with a tour which features the life, work and influences of William Morris (1834-1896). From May 16th to May 24th, we’ll be joined by Peter Cormack the leading Morris scholar who is our guide and Peyton Skipwith our Associate Director and charming knowledgeable traveling companion. Peyton is a past Master of the Art Workers Guild who has written extensively on the work of many of the artists of the Arts and Crafts Movement.
The ideal and presence of William Morris are an integral aspect of all of our tours, yet this one is devoted exclusively to the life and work of this multi-faceted founder of the Arts & Crafts Movement. We will visit places central to his development, as well as a number of homes, buildings, and sites which his own work has enriched. As part of a small band of enthusiasts you will meet others who generously share their considerable knowledge and passions about this seminal figure. The incomparable insights and tidbits they add will make this a trip one you won’t want to miss. So come along and learn a new appreciation of this seminal figure and don’t forget your binoculars for all those stained glass windows.
