The launch of the exquisite origami hollyhock seed packets at Leila’s was a great success and we have now sold most of the 300 packets.
So, the seeds and love from Arnold Circus will be spread far and wide…
There are still some packets available at Leila’s Shop,
and Herrick Gallery.
Don’t miss the chance to own a very beautiful little piece of community gardening history for only £5!
Designed by Masaki Miwa at Åbäke, and printed by Hato Press in an edition of 300, these exquisite hand-made origami packets contain approximately 100 multi-coloured hollyhock seeds, gathered last summer on Arnold Circus. The hexagon shaped seed packet features Rachel Whiteread’s ‘Hollyhock Seeds’ as a beautiful bright pink soy ink risograph print, especially created for the Friends of Arnold Circus.
The ‘Hollyhock Hexagons’ are available to buy for £5 from Leila’s Shop and Herrick Gallery.
100% profit from sales of the seed packets goes to the Friends of Arnold Circus.
