William Morris was a founder of the British Arts & Crafts Movement and was associated with the Pre-Raphaelites. He is now best remembered for his repeat patterns for furnishing, fabric and wallpapers. Dearle began his long employment with the firm working as a teenager in the firm's Oxford Street shop. William Morris took him under his wing and trained him to work firstly in the stain glass and then as his tapestry assistant.
