William Morris GalleryThe 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. There are also displays of work by his associates Edward Burne-Jones and The Century Guild, and paintings by Pre-Raphaelites and Frank Brangwyn. The gallery was opened by Prime Minister Clement Attlee in 1950 and in 2012 it reopened following a major refurbishment with a new tea room and more extensive and interactive displays of the textiles, furniture and fine art for which Morris is best known. The top floor of the gallery is a learning and study space offering craft studios for schools and community groups and there's a library and seminar room, due to open in September 2012. The reference library and reserve collection are open by appointment only.
