• The Book of Wild Flowers: In Conversation with Angie Lewin
    Rob McDougall

Join illustrator Angie Lewin and author Christopher Stocks in conversation with Dovecot Director, Celia Joicey, to discuss The Book of Wild Flowers combined with a last chance to see Andy Warhol: The Textiles.

The Book of Wild Flowers is a celebration of British wild flowers and their place in the landscape. Following the hugely successful The Book of Pebbles, it highlights Lewin's favourite wild flowers through her exquisite paintings and illustrations, many of them created specially for the book. Christopher Stocks explores their beguiling and sometimes peculiar history, and reveals some of the best places to see them, as well as the conditions in which they thrive. Dovecot Studios and The Scottish Gallery are delighted to be partnering on this event, which will include discussion of Angie Lewin’s new tapestry with Dovecot Teabowl & Bracken, where the Dovecot Weavers interpreted a tiny wood engraving at a glorious scale.

To inform the discussion, Dovecot is delighted to announce Angie Christopher will be joined by Dr Greg Kenicer, a botanist at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh to highlight the key relationship between plants and people.

The event is followed by a special book signing and entry to Andy Warhol: The Textiles from 12:00.

Angie Lewin studied fine art at the Central School of Art and has since become a highly regarded painter, printmaker and designer. She is a member of the Royal Watercolour Society and the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers.

Christopher Stocks is an author, journalist and trainee bell ringer. He is the author of The Book of Pebbles and his first book, Forgotten Fruits, became an unlikely success, with Monty Don choosing it as his favourite book of the year.

Dr. Greg Kenicer is the author of Scottish Plant Lore and a botanist at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. He has published numerous scientific papers on the evolution and diversity of peas and beans but the fantastical relationships between plants and people is where his heart really lies.
