Taught by: Michelle Edwards and Pascal Anson

This is a 3 week course for students of all levels and experience interested in interior design. Through a structured method of problem solving and unique thinking, this highly structured course begins by analysing existing interiors, retail spaces, restaurants and bars in London. You will learn how to 'read' an interior. After  the design project brief is given, the course will involve a mix of creative exercises and workshops. This will lead you through the basics of interior design as well as the fundamentals of the design process to completing a finished project. We have a ‘hands on’ and practical approach to the design process. Design for us, is all about thinking through making and doing. The course provides you with a structure where creative ideas, drawing techniques  (both technical skills and sketch visualisation)  and model making enable you to be confident when presenting your ideas. The course will provide you with high quality and dynamic 2D and 3D work. Students can use the produced work in their portfolio. They will also demonstrate good practice in research through producing a dynamic sketchbook. You can expect an intense and challenging studio experience.
