Skills you can expect to learn during the course include:
I am a qualified Landscape Architect and Garden Designer, practising through my Gloucestershire-based company, DWN Design, with experience across the commercial, educational and residential markets. Being a former lecturer in Landscape Architecture, I understand the importance of providing advice and information that recognises and promotes high quality design, sustainability and environmental awareness. I’m delighted to be delivering this design workshop at Tig’s Barn and I look forward to meeting you and sharing a creative insight into the garden design process. Our Garden Design workshop will appeal to those who are passionate about their garden and would like to gain greater skills in understanding, designing and maximising their outside space to the full. It caters for beginners and those wishing to further basic skills. If you have ever returned home from a visit to the garden centre with a random selection of plants and no real idea as to why you chose them or where you want to place them, this workshop is most definitely for you! Using the many different external spaces at Tig’s Barn, together with the extensive borrowed views, I will be sharing my skills and knowledge to help you to get the basics right and prepare you to undertake projects of your own. The format of this workshop will be a mix of delivered content and on-site application, so don’t forget to bring your sun screen and wellies – well this is Devon after all.
