Charleston

Art and Inspiration for Garden Planting

Explore the interaction between the visual art, the spoken word and creative gardening inspired by Charleston

Charleston its surrounding landscape was the inspiration for much of the work of the Bloomsbury Group. And in turn, their work has become an inspiration in itself.

This art and garden workshop is an opportunity to explore the interaction between the visual art, the spoken word and creative gardening. We will draw inspiration from the house, the garden and the work at Charleston in order to develop your own, original planting scheme.

We will spend time enjoying and analysing the work in the house and garden, before moving on to use the colours and themes to design new planting schemes based on what we see.

This day is for anyone who enjoys experimenting, playing with colour and creating new planting schemes.

No gardening or artistic experience is necessary.

By the end of the day you will:

  • Have been inspired by the setting and work of Charleston house and garden
  • Be able to analyse your own response to the artwork
  • Use your own thoughts about the artwork to develop an original planting scheme
