  • William Morris and Scottish Arts & Crafts

This illustrated talk with Simon Green of Historic Environment Scotland celebrates Scottish Arts & Crafts and investigates the influence of William Morris.

Expanding on the examples and ideas posed in Arts and Crafts Scotland: In the Spirit of Morris on display on our Viewing Balcony from 1 February, Green will focus on the rich variety of Arts & Crafts buildings in Scotland. From Melsetter in Orkney, with its close links to May Morris, to the Small Isles of the West and the rolling country of the Scottish Borders, celebrate the wealth of Arts & Crafts design across Scotland.

Tickets £12 (+booking fee), includes entry to exhibition May Morris: Art & Life on day of the event.

Every exhibition ticket sold supports the work of The Dovecot Foundation to advance visual art, tapestry, craft and design in all its forms.
