, at 7pm in the Lifford Hall, Lower Green, Broadway WR12 7BU, Juliet Heslewood will give an illustrated lecture entitled William Morris in the Cotswolds.
William Morris (1834-1896) was an English textile designer, poet, novelist and social activist associated with the Arts and Crafts Movement who will always be associated with fabulous designs created for Morris & Co. In 1871 Morris moved his family to Kelmscott Manor, Oxfordshire, in the Cotswolds where the beautiful gardens with barns, dovecote, meadow and streams provided a constant source of inspiration for Morris until his death in 1896.
Juliet Heslewood is an author and art historian. For thirty years she lived in France where she devised and led study tours on art and architecture. Now living in England, Juliet works with ACE Cultural Tours (for tours in France), the Ashmolean Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, NADFAS, as well as locally in Oxfordshire where she continues her writing and lecturing career. In this new lecture, Juliet explores William Morris’s associations with the Cotswolds.
