Garden of Making. Collect Open 23, Somerset House, London.

Garden of Making is inspired by Bridget Bailey’s encounters with plants and insects on her allotment. From millinery and textiles to fly-tying, found feathers to cat whiskers, velvet to abaca fibre, this immersive installation grows from the creative compost of her making life. Techniques and species combine and cross pollinate revealing parallels between making and the way nature evolves.
