Learn about


When you join the William Morris Society in the United States, you become part of a national and international fellowship dedicated to the life, works, and legacy of William Morris.

Members receive publications, including The Journal of William Morris Studies and our magazine Useful & Beautiful, access to events, and discounts.

As a member, you’re not only deepening your knowledge of William Morris. You’re also supporting important research through our publications and fellowships, and joining a diverse community of artists, writers, craftspeople, collectors, teachers, scholars, and social activists.

Members receive copies of two publications twice a year:

  • Useful & Beautiful, the magazine of the William Morris Society in the US. 
  • The Journal of William Morris Studies, the interational journal of Morrisian scholarship, published by the William Morris Society UK.

As well as these physical publications, members also receive access to our regular email newsletter and digital issues of Useful & Beautiful and the magazine of the William Morris Society UK.


Members are the first to know about all our events. As a member, you will be automatically invited to all of our digital lectures, conversations, and social events.

Members will also get exclusive access to private digital events such as our planned Member-Maker Events (coming autumn 2021!).

Additionally, we are excited to again invite our members to in-person events once it is safe to travel and gather together. Stay tuned for more information later in 2021.
