EVENT: ‘Growing Flowers Down the Docks’ exhibition launch

Date: Tuesday 24 May 2022

Time: 12.00 - 13.30

Location: Futures Gallery, Pierhead

Description: Working with textile artist Haf Weighton, two schools from the Vale of Glamorgan have created artworks that respond to discoveries made by a Cardiff-based botanist 100 years ago. Royston Smith was a celebrated botanist who found unusual plants growing in Barry and Cardiff docks during the 1920s. Pupils from Cogan Primary School and Ysgol Bro Morgannwg have reflected on these discoveries through artwork that features flower prints, ship sculptures and beautiful hanging fabrics.

Open to the public: Attendance at the event is by invitation only however the Senedd and the Pierhead will remain accessible to the public during our normal opening hours.
