EMBROIDERING WITH MR MORRIS with Robert Reason

Wednesday 16 Jun 2010, 10:15 AM – 11:45 AM

William Morris’ interest in embroidery was evident from the establishment of Morris & Co. in 1861 when he set about designing flowers that Jane Morris could embroider on curtains for Red House.

Embroidery remained an integral part of the firm and due to the embroidering talents of the Barr Smith family in Adelaide, we can still savour the exceptional skill, beauty and design ethos of Morris from the collection of the Art Gallery of South Australia.

Robert Reason is the author of Morris & Co. Designs & Patterns (2003); Gladys Reynell (2006), and co-author of Empires & Splendour: The David Roche Collection (2008).

This lecture is kindly supported by The Friends of The Johnston Collection.
