Nature reconstructed The patterns found within nature, and the calmness they can bring us, are the inspiration for Flow Gallery’s first exhibition of 2020, Constructing Nature. The London gallery, known for its curated selection of contemporary wares, including ceramics, wood, glass and textiles, now welcomes weaver Lizzie Farey and jeweller Anna Gordon for a beautifully minimalist exhibition. Farey and Gordon’s unique responses to the exhibition’s theme include intricately woven baskets and finely constructed broaches.

Come rain or shine Sissinghurst Castle’s magnificent garden is now open to the public on winter weekends. In the past, the renowned Kent garden has traditionally closed during the colder months, but it is now accessible in wintertime, offering visitors a new, refreshing and detailed perspective of the grounds.
