Glass artist, Wendy Newhofer (MSDC) is thrilled to be invited by award-winning garden designer Helen Elks-Smith to design and make a window for her RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019 garden the Warner's Distillery Garden. The window is made of 12 panes of glass and the images relate to the immediate environment of the Warner's Distillery who are sponsoring the garden. Helen Elks-Smith has been a great supporter of the SDC, having previously commissioned Tori McLean (MSDC) to create textile shrouds for her award winning RHS Chelsea Flower Show ‘The City Of London Corporation Oak Processionary Moth Garden’ in 2014.
