The Book of Wild Flowers: In Conversation with Angie Lewin

About The Book of Wild Flowers: In Conversation with Angie Lewin

The Book of Wild Flowers is a celebration of British wild flowers and their place in the landscape. Following the hugely successful The Book of Pebbles, it highlights Lewin's favourite wild flowers through her exquisite paintings and illustrations, many of them created specially for the book. Christopher Stocks explores their beguiling and sometimes peculiar history, and reveals some of the best places to see them, as well as the conditions in which they thrive.

Dovecot Studios and The Scottish Gallery are delighted to be partnering on this event, which will include discussion of Angie Lewin’s new tapestry with Dovecot Teabowl & Bracken, where the Dovecot Weavers interpreted a tiny wood engraving at a glorious scale.

The event is followed by a special book signing and entry to Andy Warhol: The Textiles from 12:00.
