Introductory Course Interior Design and DecorationInterior design courses
Aims of the programme:
This four day course begins the exploration of interior design and decoration through a project – ‘A Singular Space’ in which students put together designs and proposals for an exhibition room-set. Learning is delivered through lectures, workshops, discussions and project work and students produce boards and visuals to illustrate their design and their choices of furniture and finishes.
Informal talks and workshops take students through the various ‘first steps’ in regards to design thinking. A design brief underpins the four days with students briefed to provide ideas for a space. Taking the brief and interpreting ideas in a visual format is at the heart of this short program culminating in open discussion of the presentations providing perhaps a first taste of design critique.
Lectures on colour, the evolution of style and the design process will inform the approach to design augmented by workshops on pattern and texture, furniture placement and presentation.
