Get to know our garden guru…

We want to introduce our Create98ers to one of our brand new tutors for 2019: Katrina Kieffer-wells, of Earth Designs and Bud to Bloom.

Katrina, in a nutshell:

  • Katrina has been a keen gardener since childhood and worked as a florist for many years.
  • After graduating from university in 1998 with a degree in Creative Arts, Katrina went to work as a producer for a prestigious design and events company based in London’s West End.
  • She left in 2002 and decided to couple her love and knowledge of gardening with her creative skills and experience of event management. Earth Designs was born.
  • Since then Katrina and her husband Matt have grown Earth Designs into a successful company with over 250 designs and 100 builds under their belt.

Impressive, huh?!

Now you can come and learn all about transforming your own garden from the lady herself by attending Katrina’s ‘Design Your Own Garden’ and ‘Garden Masterclass’ sessions at Create98. Become green-fingered just in time Spring!

Welcome to the gang, Katrina!
