Fountains, pools and basins form enviable parts of gardens but surely the ultimate water feature is a river running past! This summer school will explore some of the most iconic riverside gardens spread across Europe along rivers including the Elbe, the Arno, the Loire, the Seine, and the smaller Nonette. Our gardens will be drawn across the centuries from ‘Englischer’ baroque palaces to exquisite French formal, from country side to urban. We visit the watery domains of Germany, France, Italy and even England considering the role of rivers in garden creation.
This course will be delivered via Zoom.
