Discover your own creative ability as Environmental Designer Sharon Ponsford takes you through the process of designing a solar passive eco-home. Learn how to select building materials which are good for the environment and identify those which are not.  Learn about sick building syndrome and geopathic stress. 

Put your drawing skills to practice as you choose your design options and building materials to draw the concept plan for a 6m x 4m garden studio. The studio can easily be adapted to become an office, teenage retreat or even that weekend accommodation on your secluded country hideaway.

Many participants will go on to successfully design their own small solar passive eco-home and create their own quality hand-drawn concept plans.

This workshop is suitable for anybody wishing to learn the basics of architectural presentation drawing.  This course is also suitable for those considering formal study in the area of building design & drafting or architecture.
