New satellite training hub in Crewe

the design profession in the region has long wanted a new source of professional development training

The London College of Garden Design have announced an expansion of their short courses with a new satellite training hub in Crewe. The new base will allow designers and landscapers who cannot afford the time or cost of visiting London to benefit from the very best of the College’s courses and tutors near to where they work.

Andrew Fisher Tomlin, Director said “We have been conscious for a while that many designers and landscapers have wanted to take advantage of our professional level courses but travelling to London is often expensive with the cost of hotels and travel and can take up a large part of the working week. By setting up a base that was chosen for it’s proximity to some of the UK’s biggest population centres we are able to deliver those courses in a cost effective way to some of our biggest fans.”

The new Crewe series of courses is being coordinated by Paul Richards, a successful designer based in the region and previously responsible for the instigation of many new short courses for the Society of Garden Designers. Paul said “the design profession in the region has long wanted a new source of professional development training and the extension of the London College of Garden Design’s most successful courses here will be a major boost for us.”

The first course to be run on 7th November is the Garden Design Drawing Skills course which has been sold out on four occasions in London. Other courses to follow in the next year include subjects such as construction detailing, designing with water, contemporary planting design and successful business strategies.
