The Garden – An Art Form 

Throughout history, garden making has reflected and responded to the artistic trends of the day, sitting alongside developments within architecture, interior design, fashion and the fine and minor arts. lts own art form has found expression in the choice of layout, materials, ornamentation, buildings and planting design, and the creative interplay between space, composition, colour, texture and form. This study day examines that expression, tracing some of the notable artistic developments in mainly English gardens up to the present day.

 

Lecturer: As a qualified landscape architect and interior designer Marilyn has been involved with art and design for over thirty years, and has a particular interest in the history of Design, Modernist and contemporary architecture, and in the developing archive collection for Landscape Architecture. She is a founder member of the Yorkshire Gardens Trust and a member of the Garden Media Guild.
