A FREE design day giving budding decorators the chance to meet local architects and makeover specialists is to be held in Winchester.

Architects, painters and decorators will be consulting on renovation queries from 10am to 2.30pm on Saturday, November 15, at the Bapsy Hall in Winchester Guildhall.

Some 300 people attended the Henley Design Day in March, including architect Mark Shipton of Oxford Architects.

Mr Shipton is the chairman of the RIBA South region, which represents approximately 2,500 professionals.

He said: “The Design Day is a fantastic, unique way for you to come and chat about practical ways to achieve what you want and need from your building.”
