Garden Design Open Day

Inchbald has a unique way of teaching with individuality at its heart. We believe that just like our students, every client, garden and vernacular is different and so our approach is to nurture each student’s personal process. Process is key to unlocking good design, we explore approaches to design through live projects with real clients to make the learning as realistic as possible. Our Open Morning gives you the opportunity to gain an insight into how we teach design whilst clarifying what it is like to be a garden designer. Andrew, our Director, will guide you through a new way of looking, seeing design in a different way. Our informal approach will allow for plenty of questions. After a tea break, should you wish to stay, our Full Time Diploma students will be working on their current projects and would be delighted to take questions and explain the thoughts behind their designs.

Annual Exhibition

The culmination of the Inchbald year is the Annual Exhibition, an opportunity for students to proudly showcase the extensive efforts of their studies. This year's Exhibition will be open to the public on the 9th of July from 10 am - 5 pm at Cadogan Hall, 5 Sloane Terrace, London SW1X 9DQ. It is a valuable occasion for students to network and make connections within the design profession. There is no need to book, just come along.

Graduation & Awards Ceremony

Graduating from Inchbald is an important milestone for all students. Their hard work and dedication is marked with a ceremony where they receive their qualification from the Dean. A number of special awards are presented at this event for exceptional work judged by industry luminaries who have included Monique Tollgard, Marcus Barnett, Nina Campbell and Suzanne Trocmé.

Autumn Lecture

Spring Lunch

Inchbald is deeply committed to maintaining its excellent links and relationship with the professional design world, which is what makes Inchbald a powerhouse of design education. The Spring lunch is a networking opportunity for current students to forge connections with luminaries of the garden and interior design professions. Hosted by the Dean, students, alumni, studio owners and media come together to pool ideas and connections and strengthen the bridge between education and career.
