This weekend will seek to document, explore and debate the pioneering contributions made by women to the development of gardens and landscape design from the medieval period to the present.
New and exciting research will be presented to illuminate the roles of women as designers, patrons, writers, botanists, craftswomen and artists and to explore the rich and varied possibilities from combining gender history and garden history. There will also be an afternoon coach trip to Wrest Park on the Saturday.
Please note: The cost of the coach is included in the tuition fee for the course. There will be much standing and walking over uneven ground. Please come with suitable footwear and be prepared for all weathers.
Held in association with The Gardens Trust.
