Join interior designers Martin Holland, winner of the BBCs Great Interior Designer Challenge and Mark Walters, industry expert scenery and costume designer for this exciting and interactive full day workshop that will spark imagination, stimulate creativity and guide you through the process to achieving design success in your own home.
Who's it for?
This one day workshop is aimed at those with an interest or passion for interior design, who want to learn more in a practical environment. We learn best by doing and having fun, and these are two of the essential ingredients at the heart of our workshops.
Whether you’re about to embark on a project of your own, want to get to grips with what your style really is or perhaps you just want to be more confident with your design decisions, there’s something for everyone as you start out on your design journey.
As a group we'll share ideas and best practice, experiment and inspire one another, helping to unleash your inner designer.
Where's it at?
You'll be joining us at Scene, a recently refurbished contemporary studio space in the heart of Nottingham. With a large light filled studio to work in throughout the day as well as a kitchen and dining space for all our delicious food, it makes for the perfect location to inspire and get creative juices flowing.
Think of it as a big blank canvas on to which you'll be adding your own thoughts, ideas and interior design dreams for the day!
What can you expect?
A host of talks, lots of inspiring imagery and interactive sessions packed with practical tasks to get you in the know when it comes to interior design and give you confidence to tackle your own projects
Expert advice on hand to deal with those decorating dilemmas to help get it right every time
The chance to sample a wide range of products and finishes from our own selection of highly regarded brands including paints, fabrics, flooring and accessories
Food and refreshments throughout the day including a light breakfast, lunch made with locally sourced produce and champagne and cakes in the afternoon
A luxury gift bag packed full of goodies to take home and enjoy!

We haven't called it a 'WORK' shop just so you can sit around being dictated to all day on the dos and dont's of interior design, be prepared to get stuck in and roll up your sleeves in what promises to be a full on, interactive day of design.
We're going to share our experiences and the knowledge we've built up as amateurs turned professional, showing you that good quality, considered and creative interior design isn't just reserved for those with deep pockets. Everybody deserves to enjoy the home they live in and get the most out of each and every room and we're going to show you how!
By the end of the day you'll be equipped with the tools to confidently create your own stylish interiors, that are filled with personality (YOURS!) and be ready to take your own space to the next level.
