Discover your potential as an interior designer by creating a design for a domestic space. Through a series of workshops, you will develop your design awareness and learn the basics of planning a design scheme. We will introduce you to three-dimensional thinking and analysis as you begin to plan and stylise an interior space. There will be an emphasis on developing your practical skills as you learn how to produce scale drawings, mood boards and sample boards. In addition, you'll find out where to source and how to create that designer look. With a wealth of unrivalled experience and expertise, our tutors will provide vital insights into the realities of the design world. Please note that this course requires dedication; students should therefore allow time to work on their project outside of class.
By the end of this course you'll have begun to develop a range of design-related skills, and the confidence to start applying your skills to your own domestic design scheme. You'll leave the course with a number of newfound design-related skills.
