The William Morris Gallery reopens to the public on 2nd August following the completion of the first phase of a major restoration and local artist Grayson Perry has been chosen as the subject of the first exhibition at the historic Walthamstow gallery. The Turner Prize winning artist's Walthamstow Tapestry, which charts man's passage from birth to death, features in the exhibition which runs from 2 August to 23 September 2012.
The Grade II-listed William Morris Gallery, housed in the mid-18th century boyhood home of artist and designer William Morris, has a permanent exhibition on his life and work - including wallpapers, fabrics, carpets and stained glass. A total of nearly 600 exhibits are displayed across 12 galleries including influential works such as his first ever wallpaper design, the wallpaper he designed for St James' Palace and the only tapestry ever to be designed by Morris himself.
