Standen House – Morris & Co. Inspired by Nature exhibition

Whether you go during the English summer or autumn – a visit to Standen House and Garden in Sussex will be a treat. Come to the showroom to select your own William Morris Patterns to create your own tribute to nature.

Morris & Co. are delighted to support the forthcoming exhibition at the National Trust’s Standen House and Garden in West Sussex. Discover the inspiration behind the beautiful patterns of flowers and birds featured in signature designs through a new exhibition beginning this summer.

Uncover the process behind the creation of these iconic prints alongside displays of exquisite hand embroideries by Morris’ daughter, May. There will be an opportunity to see a living artist’s studio and a chance to get involved in a variety of activities with the family.
Learn about the different manufacturing techniques used by Morris & Co. in William Morris’s time. On loan from the Morris & Co. archive is a wooden hand block that would have been used for printing wallpaper.
