GIDC winner launches interior design workshops

Martin Holland – a previous winner of BBC2’s Great Interior Design Challenge has announced plans to launch a series of interactive design workshops.

Martin – who runs MartinMark Design along with business partner Mark Walters – will host and present each of the eight hour workshops. His aim is to “guide attendees through the creative process and help them achieve design success.” The workshops have been curated to include a mix of creative ideas and interior inspiration along with practical hints and insider tips.

A variety of leading interiors brands will be supporting the workshops, allowing guests to sample products from various ranges and learn how to use them.

Highlights of the workshop include: ‘the design process – where to start,’ ‘space planning – layout and scale,’ and ‘colour, pattern and texture.’

Martin commented:

“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 out of the day.”

The first workshop will take place on 22 April at Scene Studios in Nottingham. Tickets cost £160 and can be bought from:
