We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

Do you walk around your house or yard, knowing you want things to look different, but not quite knowing how to dive in? Have you started projects only to discover they didn’t end up how you envisioned?

In this experiential design workshop with architect and teacher Jenny Lee, uncover your personal creative-thinking style and learn how to apply it with more confidence around your home, garden, or work environment. Whether you want to build a new house, renovate a room, start a garden, or just fix with more flair, this workshop helps you trust and harness your creativity—and gives you the skills you need to be more inventive in your everyday environments.

During the week, you engage in design exercises, explore basic architectural skills, and then design and build a scale model of your dream room, house, garden, or any other space—inside and out.
