William Morris in Adelaide
Explore the wonderful hand-made textiles, stained-glass furnishings and interior design of William Morris, who made a major impact on the Adelaide society of the late 19th century.
One of the great dynamos of English interior design, William Morris – designer, poet, mediævalist and socialist – revitalised decorative art with his Arts and Crafts Movement, which swept across the British Empire and found its home-away-from-home in the growing city of Adelaide.
In Adelaide, Australia’s wealthiest family, the Barr Smiths, became Morris’s largest international client, furnishing seven homes with his works.
On this tour, join award-winning quilter Michele Hill to explore these wonderful residences and other key sites, and revel in the beauty of Morris’s enduring works.
