Lucienne Day was an enthusiastic gardener and plant forms inspired many of her textile designs.

Organised by the gallery’s GROW team (a group using the collections and the gardens to improve mental health).

You will also be able to see the gallery exhibition 'Revolutionary Textiles 1910-1939', a period when textile design took off in new directions throughout the Western world.
