The Lost Words

Acorn. Bluebell. Dandelion. Fern. Heron. Otter.

So many words describing the natural world are disappearing from our children’s everyday language. The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris is a spellbook, summoning lost words back into the mouth and mind’s eye. Following a successful crowdfunding campaign, a copy of this book has been given to every Sheffield primary school in autumn 2018.

We put artists into schools to work with children to create work inspired by The Lost Words. These pieces, including willow sculptures, a poetry machine, ceramics monoprinting and more, are on display at the Millennium Gallery from 21-23 June 2019.
