With the right tools and simple materials, it's possible to make models that will persuade a client to move forward with your proposal for their project. During this course you will be introduced to the materials, tools and skills required to create accurate scale models. You will be shown a range of materials and told about their properties and suitable uses. Using accessible materials, including card and foamboard, you will learn how to read a 2D plan and translate this into a 3D scaled interior model. Students are welcome to use their own plans.
