The Enchanted Garden: Gardens in the Arts & Crafts and Bloomsbury Movements: Dr Twigs Way

"William Morris, the designer and Pre-Raphaelite artist, was very clear about what a garden ought to be. Whether large or small, it ‘should be orderly and rich. ‘It should by no means imitate either the wilfulness or the wildness of nature, but should look like a thing never to be seen except near the house’. Indeed for both the Arts and Crafts and the Bloomsbury movements the garden was part of the house, and an inherent part of the design and decoration and a way of life. From wallpaper to wall roses we explore this rich space."
