Transform your garden with an original work of art based on your favourite art icons - be it a Mondrian-inspired cube, a Japanese print, a pebble mosaic, or the brilliant colours of a Van Gogh. This accessible do-it-yourself book shows you how to create unique pieces for every style of garden, large or small, from sleek minimalist to colourful and quirky... and all in a weekend. Projects include mosaics, sculptures, seating and other garden furniture, pots and planters. Step-by-step photographs and instructions take you through each project and show how easy it is to create a fantastic talking-point for your garden in just one weekend.
