'The William Morris Society
aims to perpetuate the memory of one of the greatest men of the Victorian or any age. The life, work and ideas of William Morris (1834-1896) are as important today as they were in his lifetime. The Society exists to make them as widely known as possible.
'The variety of Morris’s ideas and activities bring together those who are interested in him as a designer, craftsman, poet, and socialist, who admire his robust and generous personality, his creative energy and his courage. His ideas on how we live and how we might live, on creative work, leisure and machinery, on ecology and conservation, on the place of arts in our lives and in relation to politics remain as challenging now as they were over a century ago.'
