Friday 11th & Friday 18th November: Making the Most of Your Garden (2-part course)

Whether it’s large or small or even if it’s just an outside space or windowsill, come and learn how to make the most of it!  Develop your understanding of what is already there and how it can be enhanced.  Our aim is for you to go away with a plan for what to do next or at the very least a knowledge of the potential of your space.

Garden design. What is it? How do they do it? This introductory course offers students the opportunity to think about gardens from a planning or design perspective. It aims to demystify the art and language of garden design as well as offering a few practical techniques for planning outside spaces and a chance to measure up and draw a real-life practice design.

Course held on two consecutive Fridays with a small group in our Telegraph Hill classroom.

Cost: £80

Friday 9th December, 11am – 2.30pm Garden Room, Telegraph Hill Centre

A seasonal workshop to end the term with! Build your very own bespoke, natural Christmas wreath using seasonal foliage and berries including some from your own garden if you wish.

In a relaxed beginner friendly environment (with refreshments and festive snacks!) you will work alongside our experienced guest tutor Anya to learn the key skills involved in selecting the best natural foliage and how to arrange it into a beautiful long-lasting wreath. All materials will be provided, including an array of fresh foliage, dried fruits and berries and ribbons.

We’ll bring all the rings, wires, padding and any other materials, all you need to bring is any extra foliage you might want to incorporate into your wreath (we can guide you with ideas in advance), plus gardening gloves and a pair of secateurs if you have them.

You will leave with your own beautiful wreath to hang on your door which will last you well into the New Year.

Cost: £45 (workshop) plus £15 (materials, foliage & decorations) – total £60
