Beth Russell Forest

This remarkable William Morris tapestry was originally designed for his patron Alexander Ionides. Completed in 1887, it measured 15ft (4.5m) wide. Morris delegated the drawing of the animals to the architect Philip Webb and the foreground millefleurs to his eventual successor Henry Dearle. The result is a tribute to their lifelong friendship and various talents. It is interesting to compare the Greenery tapestry designed later entirely by Henry Dearle. The original Forest is owned by the Victoria & Albert Museum.

The tapestry has been adapted so that each part of the design is complete in itself, however the Hare, Fox and Raven look marvellous sewn together to make a modern day version of the famous wall hanging.
