    You will learn:

    • colour association and colour theory using a colour wheel –
    • how to survey a space and measure up accurately –
    • to generate floor plans and elevations from a survey –

    By the end of the course you will have finished the Design Board and will know how to plan and design a small project to the Design Board stage.

    There is no qualification associated with this course.

    On the first evening, after a visual overview of the course, you will be introduced to colour association and begin to consider colour schemes. Full details of equipment and materials needed throughout the course will be given at the first session. It is expected that amongst the items required will be scissors, Pritt stick and UHU glue, but it is not necessary to bring these items to the first session. Estimated additional expenses for learners are £12.
