May Morris at the Dovecot Studios

May Morris by William Rothenstein

An exhibition at Edinburgh's Dovecot Studios is presenting the work of May Morris, an significant artist in the British Arts and Crafts Movement and the youngest daughter of designer William Morris. 

Until the 14th March, the Dovecot shows the work of this astounding creator through drawings, watercolours, book bindings, jewellery and embroideries. May was also an advocate of gender equality, and in 1907 established the Women's Guild of Arts. 

Have a look at this article for more about this extraordinary artist and see some of her work on the National Museums of Scotland's website.
