The William Morris Gallery is a grade II* listed Georgian building, previously the family home of artist, designer and activist William Morris. It reopened in August 2012 following a major redevelopment and in 2013 it was awarded the Art Fund Award for Museum of the Year. It continues to go from strength to strength and play an important role in its local community.
COOKIES has made two videos with the gallery’s education department. For the first one, we filmed a number of different workshops that they offer to schools, incorporating different skills such as drawing, storytelling and relief printing to investigate William Morris’ work and his love of nature. After these energetic sessions, we created a promotional video to communicate the benefits and qualities these activities can offer to young people. The second video followed members of the gallery’s Young Curators group as they produced a workshop in nearby Epping Forest. This including interviewing them about their participation in the programme. This was used for both for internal use and publicity.
