Q: Who are the workshops aimed at?

A: my typical client


 ~ Busy people who need a hand bringing their designs to reality. My past clients at Heliotrope have been professional men or women or busy working mums and dads who have a renovation or building project looming large and need another pair of hands. 


 ~ I help to sift through interiors ideas and bring these to life in the home. It’s a partnership and the relationship is based on a mutual understanding of a particular style. The client can trust in my ability to translate that style on time and on budget. 


Q: what happens in a workshop?

A: learn design tools and apply them to your own home


 ~ Workshops recreate that partnership in small groups. Construction being a slightly male dominated environment building projects can seem a slightly one dimensional environment for clients and designers to live in for more than a few months.


~ A combination of 10 or 15 minute mini-lectures on specific aspects of design and hands-on practical exercises. In between these I make the tea while clients begin to get inspired and make design decisions with 1:1 help as and when necessary.
