The KLC Introduction to Interior Design is ideal for anyone with little or no knowledge of interior design, looking for a practical and inspiring first step into the world of interior design and decoration, whether for a specific project or just for their own interest.
While it is not directly aimed at those seeking to gain a professional qualification and work in the industry, it could provide a valuable first step for anyone considering more in depth study and a career in interior design. With no need to commit to more than one day a week it can easily be fitted around work or family commitments.
No previous art or design experience is required to undertake this course, just an enthusiasm and interest for the subject.
The course programme is delivered through a combination of inspirational lectures and hands on workshops and a showroom visit and specialist talk. Tutors are professional interior designers or industry specialists.
In addition to talks on colour, wall and floorcoverings, textiles, trimmings, window treatments, lighting and accessories, students will be introduced to space planning, kitchen and bathroom design and shown how to work with scale and create impact. They will also learn how to use colour effectively and develop a scheme using pattern and texture and how and where to source materials and finishes.
An exciting aspect is the process of accessing creativity and developing themes to provide a cohesive result. In addition to an introduction to the key subject of lighting there is also a valuable brief overview of co-ordinating a project and how to work successfully with contractors and ensure that the project runs smoothly.
Tutors are all practising professional designers and will take students chronologically through the design process from setting the budget through to assembling a professional looking design scheme. Students will be shown how to develop their creative ideas through a combination of lectures, hands on workshops and voluntary assignments. By the end of the course, they should have the confidence to plan simple room layouts, create a cohesive look, put decorative schemes together and communicate their ideas.
