Two day Introduction to Interior Design & Styling workshop



Our Interior Design workshop (14 hours of teaching) is aimed at those with an interest or passion for interior design and caters for beginners and those wishing to further basic skills. Learn how to create an interior mood board for a chosen room in your home using inspirational tricks and tips of the trade. Whether you’re about to embark on a design project of your own, want to get to grips with your Interior decor style or perhaps just want to become more confident with your creative decisions, then this workshop is for you.  ​During the workshop you will learn the key elements that make up home décor, starting with how to write a styling brief, understanding why designers refer to keywords, and discovering your preferred interior design style. You will also explore how to choose a colour palette, good spatial planning, focal points and mixing styles. You will make your own interior design mood board (tailored to your specific style) for use at home. The workshop provides opportunity to meet like minded people, be inspired by Tig's Barn's beautiful surroundings and pick up tricks of the trade to inspire you to go on to create the home of your dreams. Be prepared to get stuck in and roll up your sleeves in what promises to be a fun, full-on, interactive design experience.  We want you to get maximum benefit from the workshop so places are limited to ensure everyone gets plenty of help and individual attention. Our goal is to provide a great experience in a lovely environment and for you to have fun while learning. If you can't make any of the upcoming dates please get in touch for future dates as there'll be more along soon! What you will need to bring: • Photos of the room you would like to restyle. • A laptop, tablet or phone to source and print off Inspirational pictures • If you are familiar with the site Pinterest you may also like to pin some inspiring interior imagery in advance. Please bring this along with you, either saved on your laptop, tablet or phone or print it off and bring it along with any other magazine clippings, fabric swatches or anything else that you would like to incorporate onto your mood board. • All other materials are included in the cost of the workshop, such as home interior magazines for cutting clippings to incorporate onto your mood board, paint swatches, fabric samples and mood board materials.
