Interior Design Module One Short Course

Course description

Interior Design - Module One will guide you through essential drawing and presentation techniques and give you an introduction to three-dimensional thinking and analysis in relation to the design of interiors.

This residential interior design course will be based around lectures, workshops and demonstrations, covering everything required for designing a simple domestic interior from soft furnishings to the use of hard materials.

The emphasis will be on developing practical design skills by completing a comprehensive interior design project. You will be amazed at what you can achieve during this intensive and very practical course and you will leave already thinking like an interior designer.

With a wealth of unrivalled experience and expertise, our tutors' practical approach will prepare you for a future in the interior design profession.

Please note that this course requires dedication; students should therefore allow extra time to work on their design project outside of the class.

Course outcomes

By the end of this course, you'll have the confidence to start work on a straightforward interior design scheme by yourself. You will leave the course with a number of newfound design-related skills and the ability to use design thinking when approaching future projects.
