The younger daughter of William Morris, May was an extraordinary craftsperson who contributed significantly to the Arts and Crafts Movement.

Featuring outstanding embroidery and designs by May, as well as artefacts and objects from her life including her notebooks, jewellery, and clothing, this is a chance to learn about one of the key female forces behind the Arts and Crafts Movement.
