Demystifying Design: A Sense of Place

Demystifying Design: A Sense of Place

Instructor: Molly Hendry

Tuesday, January 25, 2022 | 6–8 p.m.

Location: Birmingham Botanical Gardens

Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens: $20 | Nonmembers: $25

Join Associate Director of Gardens Support Molly Hendry for a new class that will break down the fundamentals of garden design to help demystify a sometimes intimidating topic and bring to life a "sense of place" in garden spaces. Often we know a beautifully designed space when we see it, but we are at a loss for how to create it. This offering is aimed at uncovering those elusive qualities of great garden design.
