The RSA Fellowship in Oxford invite you to join us for a special networking event in partnership with Exeter College this March.
Kelmscott Manor is the 17th-century Oxfordshire house where William Morris - the great arts and crafts pioneer, and socialist - established a country retreat, and which became an inspiration for many of his most famous designs and ideas. William Morris was a student at Exeter College in the 1850s, and his time at Oxford furthered his wide range of interests, from history and social justice to architecture and design.
Sandy Nairne, curator and writer, and former director of the National Portrait Gallery, and Dr Claire Donovan, art historian and specialist in medieval manuscripts, will talk about the continuing importance of William Morris and the special significance of Kelmscott Manor.
The event will be introduced by Professor Sir Richard Trainor, Rector of Exeter College.
There will be drinks and networking in the Chapel after the lecture. Rebuilt from 1854 by Gilbert Scott, the Chapel was under construction while William Morris was an undergraduate at the college.
