Printmaker Beatrice von Preussen spent two months in the high Arctic in summer 2017. 

During an expedition on a tall ship exploring the Svalbard archipelago, Beatrice joined scientists measuring volcanic thermal springs and searched for fossilised worms’ teeth to post to the Natural History Museum.

This is an exhibition of that expedition, delving into the sketch books, photo albums and diaries that Beatrice made during her research for an illustrated children’s book about nature in the Arctic Circle.

Come and hear bearded seals singing beneath the ice, find out about fossils, and follow Beatrice’s journey exploring the extraordinary and unique environment of this frozen land.
