Since our last update in May, we've held two Design Training courses - in Manchester (20-21 June) and London (12-13 September) - with six different groups who are involved in looking after a historic place of worship. These intensive two-day courses which are based on the Buildings by Design course developed by EDP partner The Glass-House, helped the groups to develop their design skills and knowledge, learn from each other and from completed projects, and test ideas for the future of their spaces. Led by Leo Care of Live Works, participants found new tools and language to explore and convey ideas and aspirations.
Feedback from one of our participants (from Cemetery Road Baptist Church, Sheffield):
"The trip was immensely enlightening and I feel truly blessed to have been offered this opportunity. Not only did the course open our eyes to the amazing architectural possibilities, it enabled us to broaden our perspectives on 'looking outwards', considering the greater needs of the community."
