Experiments In Colour: Thomas Wardle, William Morris And The Textiles Of IndiaAn exploration of the collaboration between William Morris and the Victorian textile entrepreneur, Thomas Wardle, curated by textile historian Dr Brenda King. Through this exhibition at the William Morris Gallery the relationship between the two men and their experimentation with natural dyes and printing techniques is explored. Experiments in Colour shows how their interest in colour led them to the textiles of
India. Thomas Wardle, who lived from 1831 to 1909, owned a family silk dyeing business and in 1897 Queen Victoria gave him a knighthood for his services to the silk industry. His collaboration with William Morris, famously known as leader of the Arts and Crafts Movement, flourished into a friendship that lasted until Morris' death in 1896.
