The Lost Words at the Foundling Museum

Explore the relationship between childhood and nature in this new exhibition

| Visit website

The Foundling Museum hosts this exciting collaboration between author Robert Macfarlane and artist and author Jackie Morris, exploring the relationship between childhood and nature.  Macfarlane has written twenty acrostic poems using common nature words that are fading from decline and Morris has created some beautiful watercolours in response. 

The Lost Words is at the Foundling Museum 19 January - 06 May.
