Sunday, January 16, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm – Borrowed Landscapes: Learning from Wild Places

What are the places that you love the most? Is there a forest, a meadow, a hilltop, or a rocky cove that feels both simple and complex, mysterious and somehow just right? Explore how wild places can provide inspiration for design in spaces large or small. Examine New England’s archetypal natural landscapes and native plant communities and identify the qualities that give them the power to intrigue and enchant us. Next, discuss gardens that use the qualities of natural landscapes to create a powerful sense of place, even in the heart of the city. Along the way, discover design strategies that anyone, from a beginner to an experienced designer, can use to create places that are inviting, engaging, and memorable. Instructor Tobias Wolf leads this New England Wild Flower Society class on January 16 from 1 – 4 at Garden in the Woods, Framingham, Massachusetts. $33 member price, $39 nonmember.
