““Each shed is a treat in itself: cumulatively, they foster something of the wonderment that floats through childhood days of first discoveries”” ***** The Herald

A quiet and gentle haven in the hubbub of our busy lives, we bring you a short experience to celebrate the simple things in life. Lewis Gibson’s Lost in Words takes place in a garden shed, and will take you on a journey through a good book.

Lost in Words was originally created to be part of The Simple Things in Life, a series of five installations from five different artists created in garden sheds.
