Summary of Wm Morris – an art leader from the 1800’s.

The purpose of the article is inform my artist group of his wokr as it may apply to us. We wish to emulate his work. I have created the Big Yellow House in Nelson, BC. It is a combination of artist residency and studio space. I wish to follow his principles: a counter revolutionary action to the digital age.; to restore humanity in work by engaging local artists and crafters using local materials. We are seeking artists who can work in variouse forms: woodworking; block printing; design; weaving; needlepoint. Rather than a history lesson or autobiography, more of a summary and guide for our action. A call to action
