Donate towards Clare Twomey's ambitious new ceramics installation to receive exclusive artwork and collectables. 

The William Morris Gallery is working with internationally renowned ceramicist Clare Twomey on a major new art installation exploring William Morris's ideas on craftsmanship.

To realise this exciting project we need to raise £10,000 through the Art Fund’s Art Happens site, the UK’s only crowdfunding platform for the museum sector.

The project

If we're successful in raising the amount, Twomey will create a vast tile panel embellished with Chrysanthemum, one of Morris’s most beautiful and intricate designs.

Over 67 days, 67 members of the public will undertake the role of "apprentice", working alongside Twomey’s master painter to transform the original Morris-designed surface from the original state of beauty to another, with the addition of a traditional ceramic gold enamel.

Through the intensive process of watching, mirroring and learning – which would have been familiar to Morris’s own apprentices – the work will explore how practising a skill can connect us through time and space to other people.

How to donate

If you’ve never crowdfunded before, it’s really simple. Just go, choose how much you want to donate (from £5) and you’ll receive an exclusive "reward" including postcard packs,tote bags and limited edition signed artworks by Twomey.

This is a fantastic way to help bring Morris’s ideas to life for new audiences. Please contribute if you can – any donation, no matter how small, will help us reach our target.
