A talk by Keren Protheroe, archivist at Sanderson, which holds the archives of Morris & Co.
William Morris co-founded the design company, originally known as Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co., in 1861, to create and sell beautiful and useful furniture, textiles and decorative items for the home. Keren will explore the history of the company which was such a significant part of the Arts & Crafts movement and will look at original documents and evidence from the archives.
