The Amelia Project

We have to give a massive shout out to our friends at Imploding Fictions for their brand new series…

The Amelia Project

Have you had a listen yet?

Amelia Project

The Amelia Project is an audio drama podcast that offers a very special service – they can make their clients disappear, giving them the chance to start over!

The trouble is – how long can this new secret life last?

We have had great pleasure in working with Imploding Fictions, who have written this fantastic new podcast, over many years. They have supported our work at Modern Mint and always listened as we shared what we were up to in the garden.

Go listen to the Amelia Project podcast now!

Transforming Topiary

Transforming Topiary – a video made for the European Boxwood And Topiary Society by Charlotte Molesworth and I, in her garden. We take a dog topiary and work out how to update it, turning it into a bird. Worth a watch I think, and hopefully useful to you! You can see more of my clipping on the topiary page. Or read my Spring 2021 Topiary Provocation here.
