Peer through this windowed tunnel and you will see a garden rivaling Eden. This unique structure was popular in the early 18th century as a parlour amusement. In this two-day workshop with John, you’ll learn the construction of this lovely apparatus and how to fill it with beautiful images that transport you to a wondrous garden. Johnʼs model uses reproductions of the famed Maria Sibylla Merianʼs botanical illustrations, an assortment of which will be available in class for you to choose from. All materials are provided, but you may wish to bring your own favorite, very sharp scissors.
