Design partnership offers workshops at Compton Acres

A new partnership between the Janine Pattison Garden School and south coast garden attraction Compton Acres, in Poole, is offering a programme of events featuring leading UK horticultural artists and celebrity gardeners.

Visitors can attend workshops, demonstrations and lectures in Compton Acres' Italianate villa. Highlights include a day with BBC Gardeners' World presenter Sarah Raven and botanical drawing and painting with artist Gill Jelley.

Compton Acres owner Kaye Merna said: "This new partnership between the Janine Pattison Garden School and Compton Acres positions us as a leading centre for horticultural excellence.

"Our visitor experience now extends beyond a historic garden attraction to a destination where people can come to learn from the country's most inspired talents."

Garden designer Janine Pattison said: "The ethos behind the Janine Pattison Garden School is that it offers anyone from novice to advanced level a creative day out in a luxury location and inspirational surroundings, so we're delighted to be working with Compton Acres."
