Upstairs in the gloriously refurbished William Morris Gallery, we will be having a market selling handmade items for you, or for your loved one. A loving selection of artists and designer-makers, many taking Morris as their inspiration, but with amorous prices and hearty styles to suit all tastes and pockets! Featuring wandering minstrels, pop-up Poetry of Love from the Forest Poets and a Valentine medley from Natural Voices! Gifts of pleasure from prints and precious gems, to corsages and customised cufflinks...for menfolk and ladies!
Adults £2 (including entertainment and entry to the fund raising prize draw), children under 16 free, no booking necessary.

William Morris Gallery
Lloyd Park Forest Road, Walthamstow, London
The Gallery underwent a major redevelopment during 2011-12. The project was led by Waltham Forest Council, which owns and manages the Gallery, and was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Friends of the William Morris Gallery and numerous charitable trusts, sponsors and individual donors.
The historic house was fully refurbished, with new collection displays being created on the ground and first floors. The top floor was turned into a learning and research centre, with staff offices being relocated to the refurbished basement. A new extension was built on the site of the old east wing, housing a tea room, a special exhibition gallery and a collection store.
