A new introductory four-morning garden design course, studying the key principles of garden design in the acclaimed setting of Turn End house and garden, has been added to the Trust's event programme.
It will be led by garden designer Deborah Lewis and held over four mornings ((10.00am-12.30pm) on the following dates:
Tuesday 14th May
Tuesday 21st May
Tuesday 4th June and
Tuesday 11th June
Using Turn End as an exemplary model for the integration of house & garden design, the course aims to help participants find the potential in their own garden; know their garden style and to have a far greater understanding of the principles of good Garden Design including use of primary shapes, garden structures, balance and proportion, views, vistas and focal points, and repetition and rhythm.
Course numbers are limited to eight to enable a more interactive, round-table approach.
The course is suitable for absolute beginners as well as garden-lovers keen to learn more. It is also suitable for those who are 'stuck' with their gardens and looking for inspiration to move them forward, and for those interested in achieving a greater sense of harmony between house and garden.
The course could also be helpful for those considering the sensitive placement of new buildings or home-offices within their gardens or considering extending their home into the garden.
£160 for course held over four mornings. Course notes, refreshments and vision board materials are provided.
The course is also available in Autumn.
