Jackie Morris and Mererid Hopwood

Live Painting, Spells and Poetry

Winter Weekend 2019, 

The Kate Greenaway Medal-winning artist revisits her masterpiece The Lost Words and discusses the new collaboration on Geiriau Diflanedig – a Welsh-language version of Robert Macfarlane’s original text with the multi-award-winning poet Mererid Hopwood. She also introduces the 'lost classic' of nature writing, The House Without Windows by Barbara Newhall Follett, a fearless odyssey into a dreamtime of wildness and enchantment. The book is gloriously illuminated by Jackie Morris's moving art; this is a work of strange power for our bewildering times. Jackie will be painting a red fox onstage. Chaired by Peter Florence.
