Stylemonger Zoë Hewett offers an insight into the world of interior design with a full-day creative workshop at Hamilton House.

Zoë will share her extensive knowledge of techniques, colour and trends to provide a unique, well-rounded introduction to interiors. Delicious healthy food, tea and coffee will also be provided, and by the end of the day each new designer will have made their own mood board to take home. All levels of experience are welcome, from absolute beginners to anyone working on a project or property renovation.
