Instructor: Charlotte Harris
Charlotte's BA Hons in History from the University of Birmingham drives her approach to design, using historical, geological, and anthropological narratives and interpretations. She studied Landscape Design at Merrist Wood, while at the same time working on-site to ensure a clear grasp of landscape construction techniques.
Charlotte spent four years training at Tom Stuart-Smith's award-winning landscape architecture practice as well as planting seven gold medal winning RHS Chelsea gardens including one Best in Show.
In 2017, her first RHS Chelsea show garden for the Royal Bank of Canada won a gold medal. Inspired by the vast boreal landscapes of northern Ontario, Stephen Lacey of the Telegraph described it as "...a beautifully executed composition of copper, glacial granite, and airy layered planting..."
Charlotte speaks and gives talks regularly, is visiting lecturer for the Bartlett's Landscape Architecture department. She writes on design, planting, and on better representation and diversity in the sector.
