William Morris Gallery

The Sixth Form Art students visited the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow, to help them understand how the purity and simplicity of William Morris’ work impacted on Art and Design in the Industrial age of the 19th Century.It was important for them to have an understanding of how he used Nature as a source of inspiration in his work.

Morris developed his design ideas from looking carefully at nature and from a deep knowledge and understanding of how different plants and species work. This enabled the students to understand why initial observations and drawings are so important at the start of their personal projects and to understand the various processes and structures that are crucial to the projects development and successful final outcome.
