The School Trip Community White Logo


Students will get up close with William Morris’s life and ideas as they explore his inspirational country home and learn about his relevance and influence today. They’ll become pattern detectives, artists, and makers as they follow in William Morris’s footsteps to design and print their own repeat patterns inspired by the environment around them.

Their workshops usually begin at 9.45am and finish at 2.15pm. Please get in touch if you have any time constraints – they will adjust the timings where possible. If you’d like to work with them on a longer project, speak to the Learning & Outreach Officer about how they can produce a programme of activities to take place onsite and in the classroom over a few weeks, a term, or even a full year.
