  • RHS Garden Harlow CarrCourses and workshops

    RHS Garden Harlow Carr offers a wide range of workshops from pruning and propagation to art and photography, to inspire you and enhance your knowledge of plants and gardens. Most courses include a practical element and are offered at a range of different levels of experience.

    RHS Garden Harlow Carr offers the opportunity to learn alongside RHS horticulturists and experts in the fantastically resourced Bramall Learning Centre. This amazing building, one of the greenest in the country, has three classrooms and a library. Close by are the educational resources of the teaching garden, glasshouse and the lodge.

    Our 2018 programme aims to provide horticultural sessions to suit everyone. Whether you are a complete beginner, career changer or just wanting to learn something new in a friendly and relaxed setting, we hope we have something for everyone. This year we have added to our popular series of guided walks and have included practical activities for you to try where appropriate with our talented team of

    horticulturists who will share with you seasonal highlights and give you tips and advice for your own garden.

    We have extended our range of garden craft and creative workshops, offering you the opportunity to learn how to cultivate and weave your own willow, use pottery to make a Green Man tile or decorative planter and use green wood to make furniture, spoons and kitchenalia. Our botanical drawing and lino printing offer the seasons of the gardens as inspiration and the natural world is the inspiration for retro prints and lampshade making. We hope you find a course to fire your enthusiasm and look forward to welcoming you to the garden in 2018.

    The Royal Horticultural Society is the UKs foremost gardening charity, helping and inspiring millions of people to garden. We do this at our gardens and shows and through our scientific research, publications, libraries and our education and community programmes. We are entirely funded by our members, visitors and supporters.
