Garden and plant inspired painting, woodcut, glass and stone by two artists.

Jane Raven (Sarah's twin sister) is an artist who has her own design and production workshop in Edinburgh. For the last three years Jane has been studying flower painting and this is her first exhibition at Perch Hill. In addition, she produces beautiful pieces of stencilled and sandblasted glassware, as well as hand-engraved stone which will also be included in the exhibition.

Charlotte is an artist and a member of the Lewes Printmakers. She has used nature and the garden at Perch Hill to inspire a series of handmade original prints from blocks cut from wood, lino and card.
