The garden of Marres has a rich history and offers space to large fig trees, flowering shrubs such as hawthorn and winter jasmine, ferns and flowers such as tulips and dahlias. It is also used by a large amount of birds, insects, butterflies, toads and frogs. At the very back is a monumental ice house where the hot ice used to be stored.
Artist Gladys Zeevaarders has made a publication together with all the beauty that the garden of Marres has to offer. She asked 10 artists to connect their own practice with this garden within walls – ‘de ommuurde tuin’. The result: a beautiful publication with assignments from 10 different artists.
This summer, Marres invites you to follow a workshop in and around our garden, each time organized and led by one of the artists; from linocut to floriography, from a tea ceremony to an Open Choir rehearsal.
Participation in the workshops costs 5 euros, and you will receive the booklet De Ommuurde Tuin for free with your visit.
