Description:

Lucy runs her Interior design and soft furnishing workshops and business from her 17th Century colourful home in the Derbyshire Dales.

A taste of Interior Design: An inspirational workshop mixing both theory and practical tasks.

Are you looking to re-design your home, interested in a new hobby, or simply want a bit of time to be creative....
Lucy has hand picked all of her favorite parts from her 10 week course at Nottingham Trent University, and put them together to make this jam packed exciting workshop! Color theory, mood boards, pattern and texture concepts and lighting design are just some of what your'll learn, in the colourful surroundings and relaxed environment of Lucy's home.

Lucy is a Royal College of Art graduate with experience in Soft Furnishing, Design Consultancy, Mixed Media Textiles and she teaches Interior Design at Nottingham Trent University.

Over the 15 years Lucy has exhibited at various trade shows, including Maison et Objet, Paris. ICFF, New York and has also completed commissions for Liberty London and Colin Firths Eco Age, as well as being commissioned to write a book about her design concepts - Mixed Media and Found Materials.

Lucy is known for her bold use of colour and pattern and has a passion for working with reclaimed materials.

Inspirational classes to suit all abilities with experienced tutoring in a relaxed environment.

Lucy also runs Upcycling and Upholstery workshops, which are very practical and could be used in conjunction with this Interior Design course. Please ask for multiple booking discounts.

Cant praise Lucy enough for a great and informative day. Learned so much about my own style and how to achieve the look I want in my new home.
Don't be put off by mention of Lucys love of colour _ am pretty conservative but she was able to help me inject some colour into my very traditional room.

An excellent day. As a complete novice I learned a huge amount in a warm, supportive and inspiring environment? Excellent value for money, the day will help me avoid costly decor disasters going forward and helped me revive my creative streak!

-

I can highly recommend this one day course. Lucy was a fantastic host who provided a lovely lunch while sitting in the heart of the Derbyshire Dales. I learnt so much from the course and meant some really nice people. It has given me confidence that I needed. Once again thanks you so much Lucy.

Amazing day. Lots of great ideas and inspiration given in a short space of time. A very relaxed and pleasurable day given by a great tutor. The cake and soup was also very good !

-

I thoroughly enjoyed my day on this course with Lucy. Learning about colour schemes, patterns and textures and how to put this all together was very informative. I now have the courage and some basic principles to apply to my interior design project. We were also treated to an amazing lunch and cakes.
I am really looking forward to joining you on another one of your courses.
Thank you Lucy.

Excellent course with Lucy as always. Previous courses I have attended with Lucy have involved making or adapting things whereas this course was more theoretical although Lucy does include some practical tasks. I really enjoyed the day, learned a lot and it gave me a really good foundation in the principles of interior design, tips and 'rules' but with allowance for personal style and creativity. Lucy is always fantastically welcoming and generous with her knowledge, resources and of course food and drink! Highly recommended.

This workshop was amazing !
I learnt so much from lucy in just one day ... having the skills and wisdom of lucy there but also being able to actually do the steps myself was hugely rewarding. I still can't believe how much I learnt in such a short space of time ..... oh and the cakes are pretty amazing too !
I would highly recommend anyone to enjoy this fabulous experience.

An amazing day, so relaxing and informative in a beautiful setting. Lucy is brilliant!

-

I'm a complete novice at the theory behind interior design but Lucy put me at ease and was very approachable.

Although a more theoretical workshop it still had a large element of "hands on" tasks which I found helped my understanding. I found the colour and pattern matching topics particularly useful.

The homemade cakes and delicious lunch also helped make the day feel like a real treat!

Now I just need to get myself a colour wheel and get cracking on a mood board for the dining room!
