With the final of this year’s Great Interior Designer Challenge fresh in our minds, winner of the 2015 BBC2 series, Martin Holland, announces plans to launch a series of interactive design workshops for interior enthusiasts everywhere. The first workshop takes place on 22 April 2017 at Scene Studios in Nottingham, ticket price, £160. www.martinmarkdesign.com
Martin of MartinMark Design, will host and present each of the eight hour workshops, to guide budding designers through the creative process, helping them to achieve design success in any space. Curated to include a mix of creative ideas and interior inspiration, along with practical hints and top insider tips.
The aim is to show guests interior design is a fun and enjoyable experience, giving them the tools to help get it right. Packed with talks, interactive sessions and expert advice. Valspar, the official paint sponsor, will be joined by other leading interiors brands to support the events including; Alternative Flooring, Florrie+Bill, Sofa.com and Houseology, giving guests an opportunity to sample products from the ranges and find out how to use them to help pull schemes together.
Guest will be welcomed with coffee and pastries before getting down to business. Highlights of the workshop include: the design process – where to start, space planning – layout and scale, colour pattern and texture, and a designer’s little black book. Whether it’s embarking on a new project, figuring out a signature style or simply having confidence in making design choices, guests are guaranteed to end the day brimming with ideas.
Martin comments: “I designed these workshops for people with a passion for interior design, but are perhaps lacking the confidence and experience to know where to start. The ethos at MartinMark Design is that good design should be for everyone. The workshops provide guests with an opportunity to hone their skills and develop their individual styles in a creative and relaxed environment, making sure they get the most of out of the day.”
Set in intimate, home-from-home surroundings, the day includes a delicious locally sourced lunch, followed by afternoon tea with homemade cakes and a glass of champagne to ﬁnish. Guests will receive a luxury gift bag filled with goodies to take home and experiment with!
