Course Description

This course is ideal if you are looking to build a portfolio of design work or considering interior design as a future career, or simply interested in re-designing your own home.

It'll give you an insight into the world of interior design and inspire you with the confidence to present your own interior design schemes.

On this course you will:

  • learn how to develop and use your creativity with special attention given to light, colour, form, texture and how these key elements can define a space
  • explore decorative schemes with the use of wallpaper, upholstery, window treatments and accessories
  • gain experience of undertaking an interior design scheme and an understanding of its application in the domestic, residential and commercial sectors
  • gain an understanding of scale through the application of colour and the use of furniture and furnishings
  • be introduced to the methods and technique used to complete a project, whether this is for your own home or for a client.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course you'll have created a finished interior design project and developed a good understanding of the profession, enabling you to pursue your chosen career or pathway.

"I enjoyed the supportive environment which helped build my confidence, and the regular practical tasks that seemed simple but actually made you really think." LN, Summer 2016

Tutor Profile: After graduating from the Royal College of Art, Lucy Renshaw set up her own studio in the beautiful county of Derbyshire, where she works on bespoke interior design, upholstery and soft furnishing projects.

All Lucy’s products are hand-made using reclaimed materials which ensure every design is completely one off.

She's completed private commissions for Liberty London, Mint London, Colin Firths Eco-Age, Serendipity Paris, along with selling her work to many private clients and international boutique interior shops.

Exhibitions include Masion et Objet Paris, ICFF New York and Grand Designs Live UK.

One of Lucy's biggest achievements to date is the publication of her first book 'Mixed Media and Found Materials', commissioned for A&C Black.
