A Garden Colour Workshop with Juliet Sargeant

A Garden Colour Workshop

A hands-on workshop to learn to use colour for vibrant planting combinations

Colour is what brings a garden to life and in this practical, Juliet will show you how she draws inspiration from around her to create original colour-schemes and designs.

We will be drawing inspiration from art, photographs and nature itself……using coloured media and magazine clippings. After analysing the colours in an art-piece, you will then create an original planting scheme that reflects your chosen piece.
