Silk River Scrolls to feature in Kew Gardens Exhibition

We can now confirm that the Silk River Scrolls will feature in their very own exhibition at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew.  More information is below

Kew Exhibition

Date: Sun 22 to Fri 27 October 2017, 10am to 6pm

Location: Nash Conservatory, Botanic Gardens Kew, Richmond, Surrey, TW9 3AE

Cost: Included with entry to the Gardens.

The six metre long, hand-painted scrolls, tell stories of different locations along the River Thames and the Hooghly River in India, the connections between the two rivers and the people who live and work along them.

One of the scrolls charts the relationship between Kew Gardens and India through its plants, people, art and artefacts.

Talks from the artists and hands-on workshops throughout the week will bring the stories to life.

On Sunday 22 October, there will be a special day for under 5s and families, with storytelling sessions, a natural dye workshop and a river rangoli. Rangoli is an art form from India, Nepal and Bangladesh.
