Event Details

Inspired by the work of pioneering Scotswoman Elizabeth Blackwell, creator of A Curious Herbal (a copy of which is held at the National Library of Scotland), Amanda’s work blends folklore, traditional myths and legends, plant uses and history to reveal a new take on this incredible book. This piece is a second stand-alone chapter following on from Amanda’s performance at the library as part of the Scottish International Storytelling Festival 2019.

Amanda recently shared a short live introductory chapter drawn from the first performance as part of the Chawton House virtual garden festival which can be found here:
