A Visit to the Clay Room and the Week in Twitter

Several WMSC members gathered last Wednesday evening at the Clay Room on the Danforth to let the Morris inspiration flow! From what I've seen done in the past, the final pieces will be stunning. Hands-on events like this are always great fun. Note that the pictures on the left illustrate unfinished pieces. And when they're glazed and fired, they're transformed. I hope the artists will not be too modest and that they'll send in their finished works for us to see!

And now for the week on Twitter:

~ Standen House is in the midst of redecorating their drawing room. What an impressive process! Check it out here.

~ Hornbake Library (University of Maryland) tweeted a picture of a postcard from William Morris expressing satisfaction for the binding of a book.

~ One of our favourite blogs, the Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood, posted an archive of #WombatFriday happenings for 2013. No, you're not dreaming. For an explanation and lots of lovely pictures, visit this link.

~ Cartwright Hall Art Gallery (Bradford, UK) is mounting a Rossetti exhibition on portraits of Jane Morris. More details here.

~ Read the thrilling details of how priceless furniture at Kelmscott Manor was saved from recent flooding in the UK.
