The Lost Words

This enchanting exhibition combines the creative talents of writer Robert Macfarlane and artist Jackie Morris to celebrate the relationship between language and the living world, and nature’s power to spark the imagination.

In response to the gradual disappearance of nature from children’s stories and imaginations, Robert’s spell-poems and Jackie Morris’ beautiful, iridescent watercolours will take visitors on a journey that makes the familiar appear magical once more.

Featuring a series of immersive floor to ceiling graphics, family interpretation areas and recordings of Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris reading the poems, The Lost Words experience continues beyond the gallery as visitors are invited to explore the words and themes of the exhibition via an interactive discovery trail through the grounds.

“I want The Lost Words to delight the mind and the eye and send children to sleep dreaming of wild things.” Jackie Morris

The Lost Words is curated by Compton Verney, with Hamish Hamilton and Penguin Books.

FREE entry for Members.

School groups: Explore how illustrators Quentin Blake and Jackie Morris (The Lost Words), bring works of literature to life. See website for more details.
