Hencroft – Maurice
The prolific output of William Morris and the Arts & Crafts movement is widely evident within the National Trust Papers portfolio, not least at Morris?s own London home ?Red House?. He was a visitor, ?student? and 19th Century influencer at the Hencroft Works in Leek, where his friend Thomas Wardle taught and experimented with dyeing fabrics and printing papers with natural inks. This design ? a stitched, repeating pattern of stylised cowslips ? was found at Wardle?s school of embroidery in Leek, and has been effortlessly translated into a wallpaper design in eight stunning colourways.
