Teachers Night at William Morris Gallery E17

That was something else: a free evening at the Gallery in all its glory for teachers and those imparting knowledge. I’d been to cultural evenings before following the refurbishment of the magnificent old house and am used to the old now brilliant white staircase up to the top and the once squeaky floorboards. Imagine the maids in days of yore; up and down fetching and carrying for ole Bill and his ilk.

The main temporary exhibition is ….wait for it…..awesome. I loved it. I saw creams and browns, witches and spiders. Kinda topical!

There were free demonstrations for the attending teachers all about textiles and prints and weaving and block printing and there was free wine with nuts.

So many people I know in Leyton have no idea where is William Morris Gallery, let alone the Village.

The moon was high and nigh on full. It was good to see the viewing gallery from the outside in the dark and to get a show from the coloured lights inside.

Coming soon….
