Exhibition – A Patchwork of Lost Words

5th June 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


A special exhibition of artwork inspired by ‘The Lost Words’ by author Robert Macfarlane and artist Jackie Morris.

Artists of all ages and abilities are invited to donate postcard-sized artwork for display each representing one of the 20 words included in the prize-winning bestseller.

The book began as a response to the removal of everyday nature words, including ‘acorn’, ‘bluebell’ and ‘kingfisher’, from a widely used children’s dictionary, because those words were not being used enough by children to merit inclusion. We hope this exhibition will engage with children and adults alike, to celebrate our varied and beautiful British wildlife and inspire visitors to reconnect with the natural environment.
