“From Renaissance to Suburbia: The History of the Garden Gnome” – Dr Twigs Way
Since being allowed back into the Chelsea Flower Show, the garden gnome has reclaimed its ancestry from the original renaissance statues via Black Forest dwarfs and Victorian eccentrics and Twigs is an expert on the subject. She has even written a book about them. She is an accredited Arts Society (Nadfas) speaker. Her talk is fully illustrated and entertaining as well as educational. Love them or hate them this should be a fun evening and who knows may start a new craze! We are having a competition for the most attractive/interesting gnome. There will be a prize for the winner, so find those consigned to the shed or those that adorn a corner of your garden and bring them all along! Entry only £2 per person.
