Flower Fairies: Botanical MagicEnchanting and magical, Cicely Mary Barker's Flower Fairies have been an inspiration to generations and this summer the Garden Museum presents an exhibition featuring more than 40 of her designs, first published a century ago. Fairies were popular at the time with the mystery surrounding the Cottingley fairy photographs which Arthur Conan Doyle published in a sell-out article for The Strand. In this exhibition, original artwork from all eight of the books is displayed alongside research materials and previously unseen sketchbooks and drawings. Barker's carefully observed flowers continue to appeal to the avid gardener while younger visitors can dress up as some of their favourite fairies.

 

About Garden Museum

Adjacent to Lambeth Palace on the banks of the River Thames , the Garden Museum provides an insight into the history and development of gardens and gardening in the UK. From May 2017, following a major refurbishment, visitors to the museum can see the collection in The Ark Gallery, a building within a building which creates seven new galleries for the museum's collection - a recreation of the cabinet of curiosities put together by John Tradescants (father and son).
