This new installation explores the leaf as a sign, highlighting it’s accepted role in identifying species coupled with an inherent spiritual significance; acknowledged by many cultures around the world.

A visit to the installation gives visitors an opportunity for some quiet reflection and a chance to unwind

The installation runs until November 3rd, open Wednesdays to Saturdays from 11am-4pm
