Tuesday, September 19, 2023

11 a.m. | Mertz Library

A chiaroscuro book cover featuring a white and green floral arrangement and the title "The Flower Hunter"Award-winning garden designer, floral stylist, and photographer Lucy Hunter (aka The Flower Hunter) centers her creative life in her garden and studio located within the mountains in North Wales, UK. Here is where she designs, teaches, writes, and walks with her dogs, while keeping up an ongoing dialogue with the weeds in her garden.

Join Hunter for a sneak peek into her latest book, The Flower Hunter: Creating a Floral Love Story Inspired by the Landscape, a personal journey through the places that inspire her most. She’ll share how she gathers inspiration from the natural world—from the drama of the mountains to the ever-changing light of the coast—and then scales it down to create unique floral arrangements, dried and pressed flowers, and natural pigments for mark making.

Note: Copies of The Flower Hunter will be available for purchase and signing during this event.
