Marks Hall Garden Design Courses
As many of you know here at Karen Chamberlain Garden Design we don’t just design gardens for our clients, but we also teach them how to re-design their garden’s for themselves.
Last month we carried out our first ever garden design course taking place at Marks Hall Gardens. A truly unique workshop not only did it give participants tips and advice on garden design but also allowed us to explore Mark’s Hall well renowned wall garden.
A big ‘thank you’ to all the ladies who attended the workshop and to the venue Marks Hall Garden’s for providing us with such a warm and welcoming environment.
During the day we spent the morning exploring design techniques and, following lunch, took a stroll up to the Walled Garden to see contemporary ideas in action, before stopping off at the Wedding Garden to gather more traditionally inspired ones. All in all it was a very enjoyable day and we were even blessed with great weather!
Here are a few comments from the day…
“Please do let me know when other things come up as I do find them so interesting and very relaxed and I like the way you work by looking at everyone’s problems or stumbling points as it also gives everyone else the use of these ideas to use as well …..All in all a very good day….. lunch and coffee’s/teas were well supplied and enjoyed”.
“What a superb setting for a workshop ! Beautiful surroundings and the delightful staff. I really enjoyed the relaxed and informal teachings and discussions and went home with so many ideas to think over I have sat looking at my garden armed with paper, pencil and your ideas to mull over until the weather improves and I can try out these ideas. Exciting times!”
“I had a really enjoyable day with lots of good ideas to put in place, good course and good company. I have already got some things in place ready to go when the weather stops!!! well at least the snow and cold-am planning my long border and with the help from the workshop the ideas are flowing. Can’t wait”.
As for future workshops and courses, please check out the courses section on our website for current courses running and do email us if you are interested in being kept up to date with future courses.
Our collaboration with Marks Hall is anticipated as being a Winter/Spring programme, so watch this space for new titles and dates starting Winter 2013. We are also looking for a local garden venue that has the facilities for a Summer programme, so if you know of one, we would be very interested in hearing about them.
