Kelmscott Manor, the Pre-Rapaelites and Astrology

We will be going on a field trip on September 6 to beautiful and fascinating Kelmscott Manor, home of the artist and designer William Morris.

The house itself is an Arts and Crafts masterpiece and worth a visit just for its own sake, but we intend to go much deeper.

Astrologer Kris Lee will be leading the group with the help of his partner Liz, an artist and art historian.  Astrologer Christina Rodenbeck will also lend support.
