• The Art of Wallpaper, Morris & Co. - Virtual Exhibition Tour

Unable to travel to Edinburgh? Experience The Art of Wallpaper - Morris & Co. exhibition from the comfort of your own home with this virtual exhibition tour.


Join Dovecot Curator Kate Grenyer online to explore the legacy of William Morris through over 130 original wallpaper samples from the Morris & Co. archives. She provides context to Morris’s wallpaper designs, offering expert insights on his inspirations and those who were inspired by him. As well as Morris, the exhibition features works from designers such as Owen Jones, Pugin and Voysey. It also showcases rarely seen objects such as Victorian-era printing woodblocks and samples from Balmoral Castle and the Palace of Westminster.



The exhibition is curated by Mary Schoeser, and produced by Dovecot Studios with the Sanderson Design Group Archive
