William Morris


William Morris, whose work transcended a wide area from textile design to poetry. Was famed not only for his significant contributions to the Arts & Crafts Movement in the UK.

But it was his commitment to Socialism and it’s links to his practice and ways of life that particularly interested my project, how can you view your politics through a creative lens, especially in ways that are not as particularly overt as we may possibly see now.

Utilising Morris as a lens and a case study in the research was a crucial element in unlocking interesting ways of viewing the language of protest.
