Two new workshops series begin at Wave - nature photography with Benjamin Swett and beading techniques with jewelry designer Bonnie Rogers. What more rapturous place is there than Wave Hill to indulge your passion for either art form? And if you find the lure of a sunset evening in the gardens irresistible, and you’ll come for Sunset Wednesday, supper on the Terrace and a poetry workshop. Whatever draws you to Wave Hill this week, the gardens, serene, lush -- there is something good about all the rain! -- and inviting, create that soft summer mood we all cherish at this time of year.
