The Butterflies story

Inspired by the need to help The Donna Louise Hospice to continue caring for children and young people into adulthood, The Butterflies project was born… a bold collaboration between Staffordshire businesses, the local ceramics industry, education, charity, art and engineering – all working together to bring about the largest ever locally produced ceramic art installation in Stoke-on-Trent.

‘Taking Flight’ is a unique ceramic art installation supporting The Donna Louise Hospice for Children & Young People. Consisting of 5,000 ceramic butterflies, Taking Flight will capture the spirit of swarming butterflies – embracing life in the moment, like the precious lives of the children and young people at The Donna Louise.

You can see the installation in the stunning Italian Gardens at Trentham Gardens from 25th May 2019 until 3rd November 2019… before each butterfly takes flight to its new home!
