In the second part, make a bird or butterfly mobile using twigs from William Morris’s Garden.

Refreshments of squash and biscuits are provided after the first part.

The William Morris Society was founded in 1955 to share knowledge of the life and works of William Morris.

The Society’s office and museum are in the basement and Coach House of Kelmscott House, Hammersmith, Morris’s London home for the last eighteen years of his life. During this time he ran his manufacturing company, Morris and Company, at Merton Abbey, he founded the Kelmscott Press and he held Socialist League (later the Hammersmith Socialist Society) meetings in the Coach House. Today the Society’s talks and other events are held in the Coach House; it also hosts exhibitions of works by Morris and his wider circle.
