Marchmont House, Scottish Borders: Arts & Crafts Textiles Celebration

Detail from May Morris tapestry screen at Marchmont

1st February, 10am – 7pm, registration from 9:30am

While William Morris is widely acknowledged as the leading name of the Arts and Crafts movement, the story of his daughter May Morris is often overlooked, and her contribution to the Movement particularly in the field of textiles, warrants celebration.

In connection with the landmark May Morris: Art & Life exhibition at Edinburgh’s Dovecot Studios, and presented in association with the William Morris Gallery, the day-event is an opportunity to take an in-depth look at the enduring importance of Arts and Crafts textiles, exploring the stories hidden behind these objects and looking at the key themes of nature, beauty and the sense of community that drove the Movement.

Sponsored by Lyon & Turnbull, and supported by Arts & Crafts Tours, tickets for this all-day event are £75 including morning coffee, buffet lunch, tea and early-evening drinks reception.

Ticketed – visit for more information, or the event’s Eventbrite page.
