The William Morris Gallery use Art Fund website to stage Clare Twomey installation

The William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow, London, is the only museum in Britain dedicated to William Morris’ work as a designer, author, entrepreneur and political activist. 

The gallery is working with internationally acclaimed ceramicist Clare Twomey on a major new art installation exploring William Morris’ ideas on craftsmanship. Shining a light on his ideas for a new generation by transforming the Gallery into a live craft studio, where she will invite members of the public to work as apprentices on a vast tile panel – an ambitious installation that will bring Morris’ ideas to life for visitors and participants.

Rudy Capildeo, Art lawyer at Goodman Derrick and trustee of the gallery, commented:

“I count myself as being very fortunate to be involved with this incredible museum and this project, which evokes the spirt of William Morris, will help us to continue to raise our profile both locally and to a much wider audience.  However to realise this we need to raise £10,000 through the Art Fund’s Art Happens site, the UK’s only crowdfunding platform for the museum sector. This is the Gallery’s first foray into crowdfunding and I’m really hopeful that we will make it and be able to stage something unique and inspiring in Walthamstow.”
