Tudor Knot Gardens

posted 27 Jun 2017, 02:26 by Christine Adelson
Following our trip to Layer Marney Tower, we looked at different knot gardens. Using 2D regular shapes, we planned our designs. Working in small groups, we had to ensure that our designs had an element of symmetry.

Next we designed our own knot gardens, using dotted paper to help us to draw accurately.  Using rulers we made sure our lines were straight. We drew around templates for difficult shapes, like circles and ovals.  Making the box hedges out of tissue paper required perseverance.
    When the hedging is finished we will add colourful plants and  herbs!
