As part of our series of events for our Love is Enough we are showing Art Historian and Morris biographer Douglas Skeggs' film on the many fascinating aspects of of William Morris' art and life.


Morris – also known as ‘Topsy’ – was one of the most influential figures of 19th century Britain. Douglas Skeggs addresses the many achievements of the enigmatic Morris, including his founding of the Arts and Crafts movement, his political socialist views and his refusal to be Poet Laureate, whilst discussing the astonishing breadth of his design work. "...this film biography of the father of the Arts and Craft Movement is simply superb" Leonardo digital reviews, Autumn 2000
