Are you signed up to the Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design? Are you needing some design support, but finding it difficult to arrange?
This may be just what you’re looking for…
Summary: These two or three days offer you an opportunity to polish up your design skills in the company of your peers. It is intended to help both those just starting out and those who feel close to accreditation. Come to learn, share, make new friends and to be inspired!
During the event we will:
• Demystify the Diploma process & recent changes for you.
• Take a fresh and detailed look at the permaculture design process.
• Add another design to your portfolio.
• Share ideas and give valuable feedback on each others design work.
• Create a mutual support network to help keep you on track.
• Provide clarity on the criteria and the process leading to accreditation.
The core of this event will be to provide you with the feedback you need to become a better designer by taking you though another design process. Either bring a design that you’d like to finish (you’ll need to have done all the information gathering for it, such as site observations & client interviews), or come & start one afresh at the venue. The former option can be achieved in two days, whereas the three day event gives enough time for starting a design from scratch.
In addition bring two or three of your ‘design projects-in-progress’ (if you have them) for evaluation and we will assist you in gaining new insights and understanding. These projects can be at any stage; ideally bring one or two fairly well developed designs and maybe another started, but perhaps a bit stuck. No particular standard is expected, the Diploma is all about supporting us to become better designers and we all have to start somewhere. If we can help you, at whatever level, then you’re just who we’re looking for!
At the end of it all, you will leave with inspiration, a new peer support network (friends!) another design for your portfolio and a DVD of useful resources to help keep your designing on track.
