John Henry Dearle began his 54-year career with Morris & Co 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 stained-glass workshop and then as his tapestry assistant. By the early 1880s, Dearle was responsible for training tapestry assistants for the firm. Dearle’s natural aptitude for design led him to design for Morris & Co. over 30 patterns for wallpaper and 40 for textiles as well as carpets and stained glass. Alongside May Morris, he was the key designer for embroidery patterns at the firm. After the death of William Morris, Dearle became Art Director of Morris & Co.
