In this creative session for KS1, students will learn all about William Morris and how his connection to nature inspired the things he designed and made. Students will delve into Morris’s life at Kelmscott Manor, explore his pattern-making, practise sketching in the gardens, and design and print their own repeat wallpapers.

Their sessions 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.
