William Morris

March 24, 1834 - October 2, 1896


British artist William Morris was born on March 24th, 1834, in Walthamstow, England. He is best known today for his wallpaper, textile, tapestry, and stained glass designs, but he was also a poet, novelist, and activist. Additionally, he took a leading role in England’s Arts and Crafts movement during the second half of the 19th century. Morris was raised on the outskirts of the ancient Epping Forest. In 1848, he attended Marlborough College boarding school, situated in one of the most romantic towns in England. Morris was content spending most of his time alone exploring places like Savernake Forest, Silbury Hill, the stone circles of Avebury, and the Roman villas at Kennet. His deep love of nature is evident in the intricate and detailed designs seen throughout his career, and his advocacy for preserving green spaces and ancient monuments.
