William Morris tapestries

William Morris (1834-1896) dominated the late-Victorian creative design force in Britain we know as the Arts and Crafts Movement. He was a master of detailed design work: wallpaper and fabrics, calligraphy and type-design, embroidery and carpets and, of course, tapestries. Popular examples of this are his Tree of Life tapestry and the Woodpecker tapestry.

Morris described tapestry weaving as “the noblest of the weaving arts”. He taught himself to weave tapestries from a fourteenth century French crafts manual. This enabled him to design a high-warp tapestry loom in the medieval manner in 1879 which was placed in his bedroom at Kelmscott Manor where he would begin his days weaving. Commercial hand-weaving was later established at the Morris & Co workshops at Merton Abbey – some Morris & Co tapestries are included here designed by John Henry Dearle.

(Tapestries by Edward Burne Jones are shown in a separate section. We have created a further section of other Arts and Crafts tapestry art featuring other Morris & Co tapestries originally woven at Merton Abbey and some tapestry wallhangings which are reproductions of leading Pre-Raphaelite paintings by J.W. Waterhouse, Frank Dicksee, Edmund Blair Leighton and others.)
