FROM MONOCHROME TO POLYCHOME: how colour transformed the art of garden design

A history of the art and colours of garden design

by Timothy Walker

Timothy is a well-known and highly thought of figure in the gardening world. He currently teaches Biology at Somerville College in Oxford and was formerly Director at the Oxford Botanical Gardens and Harcourt Arboretum. He is an excellent presenter and we are looking forward to a very interesting Study Day.

Botanic gardens are often described as living museums. Garden curators lecture about them in the same way as museum curators talk about their collections. Gardens are often thought of as a place where science and art meet on equal terms. Timothy will investigate this relationship.

The lens through which the study day is focused will be the 400-year-old Oxford Botanic Gardens as well as gardens created by Timothy and his wife. Included in his talk will be examples of gardens from around Britain and other parts of the world.
