Happy Birthday William Morris!

William Morris picture in a gold frame is having a birthday, with birthday cake, balloons and a party hat.

William Morris was born on 24th March 1834, in Walthamstow. We may not be able to celebrate his birthday this year due to the lockdown, but we would still like to commemorate the English designer, craftsman, poet, and early socialist, whose designs for furniture, fabrics, stained glass, wallpaper, and other decorative arts generated the Arts and Crafts movement in England.  Happy birthday, William. Next year we will celebrate properly.

You can find more about his work here.
