Luxury London recommends 'Somewhere in the Enchanted Garden'
Luxury London, a multi-platform collection of lifestyle luxury, have featured our ‘Somewhere in the Enchanted Garden’ programme of events in their ‘8 Glorious Things To Do In London This Weekend ‘ see full piece below.
Somewhere in the Enchanted Garden by Tessa Packard and Lyndsey Ingram, Chelsea (from Wednesday)
Renowned jeweller Tessa Packard and gallerist Lyndsey Ingram have joined forces to curate a glorious ten-day calendar of interactive events and workshops, all in the name of charity. Activities are split between Tessa Packard’s impeccably curated showroom in Chelsea and Lyndsey Ingram’s esteemed gallery in Mayfair, where an immersive allotment garden has been specially created. Members of the public are invited to contribute to growing the garden by donating £5 in exchange for a ‘seed packet’, which contains a flower or small animal to add to the central garden mural. The garden will then be re-installed in the playroom at the Honeypot House in Hampshire, a charitable home dedicated to improving the quality of life of disadvantaged children.
Try your hand at a polymer clay succulent workshop; compete in a nature-themed pub quiz; learn the art of decoupage and enjoy behind-the-scenes tours at the British Museum and National History Museum. The event is so-called after Tessa Packard’s new ‘Once Upon a Time in my Secret Garden’ Jewellery collection, which refashions fauna and flora in beguiling verdigris and black rhodium brass.
