What are the entry requirements?

This course is suitable for both complete beginners and those wishing to develop basic skills by undertaking an introductory course.

What does this programme involve?

The course is designed to promote students' awareness and understanding of interior design, both historical and contemporary. Students will develop the confidence to use their ideas and abilities within the home environment. This course will foster and develop individual creativity.

You will learn how to approach a design scheme using colour theory, form and space, decorative finishes, lighting, styling, soft furnishing and overall how to combine these approaches to produce an effective overall design.

How is the programme taught and assessed?

You will learn from a mixture of theory and practical work, but the course will be essentially practical with as much 'hands on' as is possible.

What else do I need to know?

Please bring a pen and paper to the first session.

Students are responsible for necessary materials. In certain cases, tutor may source the materials for exercises for the students' convenience; costs will vary according to the project undertaken.
