Home and Garden Workshops & Classes

Inside|Out Designs Home & Garden Classes - 2023-2024 Schedule - Winston-Salem


Our classes and workshops in Interior Design & Landscapes are one of a kind! Find something new you want to learn, something fun or helpful, something you want to make or find a new path to explore. One thing is certain: in the world of design, change is constant. Landscapes and homes need to be updated as a result of this constant change: new colors, new plants, new options, new ways of doing things. You can use our home and garden classes and workshops to personalize your space, become better at DIY or be a better 'hirer of tradesmen'. As a result, you get a 'new', enriched, more efficient or beautiful space, inside & out!
