We held a two-part workshop to introduce staff members of the Botanic Gardens to the principles of miniatures and miniature gardening. After an extensive introduction to the concepts governing Miniature Settings— especially style, scale, and story—we worked on using natural materials to construct mini garden twig furniture, including tables, fences, and chairs. The second day focused on using a kit for making a more formal arbor. The kit was created by Nancy Grube and had excellent instructions. After that, adding plants and creating a story that each person wanted to tell with the dish garden resulted in a quite amazing variety of gardens. We loved illustrating the idea that everyone starting with the same materials will produce something unique as long as they make it their own through storytelling.
