The William Morris Gallery

The Peacock and Bird Carpet

21 January – 31 March 2011

This spectacular and newly acquired ‘peacock and bird’ carpet will be the focus of our spring exhibition. On public display for the first time, this is a wonderful opportunity to explore Morris’ pioneering revival of the art of the hand-knotted carpet. A wide range of sources, from historic photographs of the Merton Abbey works to Morris’ own lectures on carpet making, will be used to contextualise this fabulous acquisition.
