What the course is about

During this course you will receive both group and individual support in order to help you learn more about interior design. Alongside classroom delivery there will also be the opportunity to visit the local John Lewis store where samples and the expert knowledge of the design team will inform course content.

  • Design and plan a simple room using colour, furniture and texture

  • Produce simple drawings and mood boards to show finishes, fittings, fabrics and basic lighting techniques for your design 

  • Explore current trends in interior design 



In doing so you will be able to experiment with some of the aspects involved in interior design and start to understand how to plan a space effectively.



You will be encouraged to experiment with your ideas and explore working with new and vintage or recycled materials if appropriate. 



All our courses are made up of elements of speaking & listening, reading, and writing, and you will work using these elements throughout the course. 



Some of the skills you gain on this course could help increase your opportunities for employment or working within the community.Learning takes place in a friendly classroom setting, which is a great place for social interaction and helping you meet new people. 



Practice at home and completion of homework is advisable to enhance your learning experience.
