MAY MORRIS (1862-1938): ART & LIFE Dr. Lynn Hulse Wednesday 22 April 2020

Younger daughter of William Morris and the pre-Raphaelite muse, Jane Burden, May Morris was one of the leading figures of the Arts and Crafts movement and a key exponent of art embroidery, which elevated needlework from a domestic craft to a serious art form. Lynn Hulse explores the life and work of this pioneering British craftswoman, scholar, socialist and feminist, whose achievements continue to inspire today.
