Led by professional interior designer Ainsley Bonham-Lawson, explore the world of Interior Design in this three day introductory course looking at interior style, materials and textiles, creating floor plans and designing to a brief. Suitable for beginners.


Class 1 – Intro. What is Interior Design; How do I Find my Style?

The basics of what interior design encompasses as a career, what types of interior design there are (commercial, residential, hospitality, etc.), and an overview of different design styles.

Project: Students will take a personal “style quiz”, learn how to cohesively combine various styles and then create their own design board that reflects their style preferences.

Class 2 – Materials and Textiles

A hands-on look at the different types of materials that are available in the market (will focus on fabrics, carpet, wallpapers, and tiles). We’ll also talk about textile/pattern making and how textiles play a crucial role in interior design & decorating.

Project: Students will learn about types of pattern repeats and then design and create their own patterns using basic stamps.

Class 3 – Creating a Floor Plan & Designing to a Brief

Students will learn the basics of drawing to scale and will be able to recognise the most common symbols on a floor plan.

Project: Students will select a brief (either a bedroom, living space, or multi-use room) and create a floor plan for it. They will then use magazine imagery, materials and paint chips to build a mood board for their scheme.

Tutor: Ainsley Bonham-Lawson

Ainsley has been a professional Interior Designer for many years as well as an established artist. The class will be held on the 18th and 25th of November and the 2nd of December.
