Unravel the fantastical world of the Messels at Nymans

Unravelling the National Trust is a unique concept by a group of artists and makers who work with craft in what they refer to as ‘extreme, alternative and conceptual ways.’ The project takes place over a three-year period and kicks off in May 2012 for six months at Nymans House and Gardens, in the picturesque High Weald landscape of Sussex.

Nymans is a National Trust property known primarily for its exquisite English garden, which has been designed and developed by three generations of the Messel family. Unravelled has introduced twelve new commissions into the house and grounds by artists using or subverting the notion of craft.

The commissioned artists are: Lauren Frances Adams, Lucy Brown, David Cheeseman, Steven Follen, Sally Freshwater, Gavin Fry, Caitlin Heffernan, Guy Holder, Matt Smith, James Sutton, Alec Stevens and Julian Walker.
