In an interactive session Leonie will set design briefs for the individual groups and with her help they will find the most functional, creative and fun solutions to design briefs. On the day the team will learn all about what it takes to create really special garden spaces and will then as groups, put their new found skills to the test by asking the teams to Dream Big and create some stunning and unique spaces.
Interactive and informal, this is aimed at enhancing team work and morale and simply having fun as a group. The course will open your mind to the creative and is just as relevant to the design and garden lover as it is to anyone who has no experience in this field.
