Wendy’s comments...

I intend to run a series of WORKSHOPS where you will learn the BASIC foundations of INTERIOR DESIGN. There is a 5 DAY FOUNDATION COURSE for students, of all ages, to start them off on an exciting NEW CAREER.

…BUT if you have always been INTERESTED IN DESIGN and would like to understand more about the subject without making a career of it…OR maybe you would prefer to design your OWN FAMILY HOME to suit your lifestyle and also learn how to avoid expensive common mistakes whilst doing it…then this is also a BRILLIANT COURSE for you to take.

THE COURSE…As the course is only 5 days long you will need to be FOCUSED and prepared for HARD WORK. Contact Wendy to discuss the course in more depth and to be sure that this is the right way forward for you. It is a very exciting career but it has it’s ‘ups and downs’ and you need to be taught how to ride the waves in this tough market.

IN ADDITION to the 5 day course there is an opportunity to ADD ON extra day workshops such as TECHNICAL DRAWING, SPECIAL LIGHTING, CURTAIN MAKING, or a day spent in London at THE CHELSEA DESIGN CENTRE to see the latest fabrics collections and to meet the staff in the showrooms.
