Workshop

 

Arno King, Australia

Turning up the Heat – using bolder form, texture and colour

Tuesday 9.00am – 10.30am  ⇨ $95

 

Students are invited to bring along a scaled plan (A3 or A2) of their garden and photographs for discussion. Bringing tracing paper, pencils, pens and scale rule will also be helpful.

 

Bio

Arno is a registered landscape architect and registered horticulturist, writer and educationist. He has a passion for planting design and combining plants to enhance our domestic and urban spaces. Arno considers that planting design deserves greater attention, as it constitutes on average more than 70% of any garden or landscape project.

Based in Brisbane, working throughout Australia, and also in South-east Asia, Japan and the South Pacific, Arno responds to the varied aesthetic, climatic, social and cultural issues that drive varied design responses.

 

Synopsis

The participants will be guided to challenge and analyse planting design and plant selection, and to develop improved design skills within a workshop environment.

We will analyse some key principles of planting design and participants will be encouraged to incorporate these concepts into their personal projects, progressively through the workshop.

During the workshop we will investigate:

  • Inspirational masters and their approach to planting design
  • Natural plant associations and enhancing natural aesthetics
  • Enhancing compositions using colour, texture, form, line, repetition and balance
  • Recognising changing tastes, and the current trend towards lusher, greener spaces and stronger plant forms
  • Importantly, considering plant longevity and maintenance

Participants will turn up the heat on their design skills and confidence.
