‘Taking Flight’ – A unique ceramic art installation supporting The Donna Louise Hospice for Children & Young People

how to see them

Taking Flight will be unveiled at Trentham Gardens on May 25th, 2019.

This unique installation is a fusion of art and engineering consisting of 5000 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.

Taking Flight will take pride of place in the stunning Italian Gardens from 25th May 2019 until 3rd November 2019, before each butterfly takes flight to its new home.
