Held in the historic Gov.

Associated with the British Arts and Crafts Movement, Morris was a major contributor to the revival of traditional British textile arts and methods of production.  Attendees are invited to bring one or two books for an “ Antiques Road Show” style appraisal, with assessment of the objects narrated by Walsdorf.
