William Morris and Islamic Art Part 2

A short while ago I wrote about the Radio 4 documentary called William Morris and the Muslims, which explored the impact of Islamic art and craft on Morris and his designs.  At the time, rather frustratingly, the programme wasn't available on bbc iplayer, but it has just been repeated on BBC World Service and can be played by following this link:

The Stitch phase of River & Cloth begins in September and will explore classic Morris patterns such as The Trellis and also his fascination with techniques in hand embroidery employed in other parts of the world.
