Four Seasons in the Gardens: Webinars on garden art

Four Seasons in the Gardens: Webinars on garden art

The series of twelve webinars is a great journey through the most outstanding garden arrangements in Europe. The four parts of the event are dictated by the seasons, which finally combine into a coherent whole, creating a determinant of the idea and synergy between art and garden.

Wonderful specialists in the field of garden art will introduce us to issues inspired by wonderful historical gardens. Thematic flower arrangements made by the fantastic Duet of Kwiaty & Miut will make garden considerations more pleasant, showing that trends in the history of garden art can also be presented in a non-obvious way, in harmony with nature and with triggering experiences that cannot be resisted surrounded by flowers.       

The irreplaceable Robert Makłowicz will present issues related to the history of cooking, table culture and recipes inspired by plants and seasons in gardens.

PROGRAM

PART I – AUTUMN GARDEN COLORS

The series of webinars will start with a story about tulips, whose bulbs are planted in autumn to enjoy their unusual flowers in spring. We will check whether tulipomania was a more magical phenomenon or maybe a madness, which in some regions of Europe indirectly continues to this day as an irreplaceable love for bulbs and flower fields woven from colorful tulips.

The land of the eighteenth-century European landscape parks will most fully refer to the colors of autumn and rest, typical of this season. We will also talk about the elements without which the outstanding gardens of Europe would not exist: we will move to gardens that, to varying degrees, show the variety of ground floors and garden embroidery of different eras

PART II – WINTER DREAMS ABOUT GARDENS

In the series of winter meetings with the history of the garden, we will move to the interior, where flowers illustrate in winter what we lack at that time outside. We will talk about flowers in painting and floral motifs used in various fields of art. We will also look into the greenhouses of our friends from Italy and Poland who found a common thread of golden citrus in the pages of history.  We will also get to know symbols that with their timeless pronunciation write a story that is accessible only to art lovers in the true sense of the word. The language of the world of plants hidden in the interiors of royal residences conveys the magic and uniqueness of these places and means more than words spoken directly.
