Kate Bridger

Discover your personal sense of place at Nelson Library workshop

Nelson Library offers a free workshop with Kate Bridger aimed at finding your inner designer.

Many people want their homes to be a refuge — a reflection of themselves. And yet watching interior design shows or reading magazines may not turn up anything that feels right. Now, the Nelson Library offers a free workshop aimed at finding your inner designer. Nest Building with Kate Bridger runs Thursday, September 26 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Library.

Bridger’s book, Nest Building: a Guide to Finding Your Inner Interior Designer (Redfern House Publishing, 2011) is a different kind of decorating book, and the basis for the workshop. Nest Building doesn’t tell you what your home should look like, but guides you through a series of steps to reveal what you like and why you like it.

Bridger is a Nelson-based interior design consultant and a fabric artist. In her Nest Building workshops she encourages participants to learn about their personal sense of place, bringing a fresh perspective to the fads, traditions, taboos and eccentricities of home décor, and asks participants to bring an open mind — and a sense of humour.

Space is limited; please call 250-505-5684 or email adegrace@nelson.ca to participate. For more information about Bridger and her workshops go to katebridger.ca.
