Instagram Sensation Brings Her Magic to York Explore
Anna Potter
Instagram sensation and founder of Swallows and Damsons in Sheffield, Anna Potter, is coming to York Explore Library to share her modern approach to floral design with an afternoon of conversation and a demonstration of her art using seasonal and local flowers.

Anna Potter founded Swallows and Damsons in Sheffield in 2008. Her originality and quirky approach to floral art has attracted more than 180,000 followers on her Instagram account @swallowsanddamsons. Despite its enormous global online following, Swallows and Damsons remains a little flower shop in the heart of its community, while making international statements and creating content for big brands. Known for bringing an unexpected wild feel to floristry, Anna moves beyond the confines of fresh blooms and incorporates natural products and curiosities into her work - celebrating imperfections, subtlety in colour and form with inspiration from the rich darkness of Flemish still life paintings.

Anna Potter will be appearing at York Explore Library and Archive on 27 September at 2pm. Fox Lane Books will be on hand selling copies of Anna’s new book, The Flower Fix which includes 26 inspirational projects for people to create at home, illustrated by the stunning photography of India Hobson, lifestyle and still life photographer.

Bookings for the event can be made online at:
