Description of Garden:
The garden idea is based on “The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” from the book “Alice in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll. The bulk of the design is a table covered in turf. The table runner is a carpet of daisies being poured from an oversized tea pot.
The legs of the table are intertwined with ivy, red and white roses (painting the red roses). In the centre of the table is a cake stand with cupcakes made from different coloured pansies. The table s laden with crockery such as teacups (whole and broken), sauces and tea pots overflowing with plants such as marigolds, daffodils and tulips.
To one side is the Mad Hatters hat with orchids growing our
The design idea came from each year group researching a variety if garden designs and thinking about how we could combine these ideas with a familiar story.
The children looked at different flowers in the Disney film and we discussed how these could be used in the final design. Each year group chose a specific flower to research and had a go at creating them in different media channels, such as paint, coloured pencil/pens and tactile materials such as rice, strong and dried tapioca.
