The Lost Wordsforget me not
Friday 15th March to Sunday 26th May

Words such as ‘acorn’ and ‘conker’ have been cut from the Oxford Junior Dictionary in recent years, making way for ‘blog’ and ‘smartphone’.

Inspired by The Lost Words – A Spell Book by Robert MacFarlane and Jackie Morris, created in response to this cull of natural words – we present a celebration of our connections with nature.

This new exhibition features work by the UK’s leading lettering artists, each of whom has been asked to carve a ‘recently-lost’ word.

The Lettering Arts Centre, Snape Maltings IP17 1SP | T: 01728 688393 
Open Friday – Monday | 11am – 5pm
