Join Fiona Slattery Clark, Curator of Decorative Art, for a talk about the Lady Lever Art Gallery’s enchanting exhibition of Flower Fairies illustrations.

Cicely Mary Barker’s books of Flower Fairies are known and loved around the world. For 100 years, they have brought joy to people of all ages. These charming illustrations celebrate the beauty of nature and the innocence of childhood. They offer a unique combination of fantasy and naturalism, opening a window into a magical fairyland resplendent with flowers.

This talk will explore Cicely’s family life, her childhood inspiration and early success, the creation of the Flower Fairies, and her lifelong love of English flowers, plants, and trees.

Tickets cost £7 and can be booked below.
