Description

Would you like to transform your home but aren’t sure where to start? Do you have great ideas for paint colours and prints but don’t know how to bring a design together? Fancy a fun day away, meeting some lovely people and being inspired? On this one-day introductory interior design course, you’ll learn how to create your own A3 design board for a room of your choice, giving you the skills, solutions and inspiration you need to tackle the rest of your house too. Join me, Dawn Manwaring, at my home studio in the historic city of Norwich as I walk you step-by-step through the design process, helping you find your personal style, choose your layout, and select your furnishings and accessories. We’ll also take a trip to a local department store for inspiration, so you’re sure to come away with loads of great ideas. With group size limited to a maximum of three, you’ll get plenty of one-to-one attention, learning together in a relaxed, sociable environment where no experience is required. Or why not come along with a friend or family member – this course makes the perfect gift for someone special. The day in detail Course duration: 9.30 am to 4.30 pm (with a one-hour lunch break) Morning (9.30 am–1 pm): · Tea or coffee and introductions · Discover the key elements of design · Learn money-saving secrets without compromising on style; tips and tricks to create unique and stylish artworks; and how to up-cycle your own furniture and furnishings · Morning break with drinks, cakes and fruit · Department store visit for samples, inspiration and advice Lunch (1–2 pm): · Explore the charming city of Norwich (lunch is not provided, but I’m happy to recommend excellent local cafés and restaurants) Afternoon (2–4.30 pm): · Return to the studio to spend the rest of the day working on your design board. · Afternoon break.
