Description

Jackie Morris with Tamsin Abbott: Finding The Lost Words – Rewilding Language

Artist Jackie Morris has collaborated with author Robert MacFarlane on a beautiful illustrated book for readers young and old. Out of Nature is delighted to host Jackie Morris as part of our 'Winds of Change' weekend, to talk about the Lost Words and their re-evocation.

Tamsin Abbott is a stained glass artist and illustrator whose work is influenced by our ancient land, the hills, the woods, the plants, animals and the world of myth and fairytale.

All over the country, there are words disappearing from children's lives. These are the words of the natural world – Dandelion, Otter, Bramble and Acorn, all gone. The rich landscape of wild imagination and wild play is rapidly fading from our children's minds.

The Lost Words stands against the disappearance of wild childhood. It is a joyful celebration of nature words and the natural world they invoke. With acrostic spell-poems by award-winning writer Robert Macfarlane and hand-painted illustration by Jackie Morris, this enchanting book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages.

Talk followed by book signing with Jackie Morris.
