Feedback From Past Students

"I loved this course and cant wait to start rennovations!"

"He was great, and gave examples from his own personal work experience in the industry. A good communicator."

"Thank you very much for the 8 week course, it was insightful to understand the key principles of interior decoration. A well selection of topics for this short course. I found the assignment was very useful. Working on a scalable floor plan and mood board helps to visualize how the final design would look like. Better planning to get the items that will match and work for the entire room. The GECA presentation was a bonus of the course and it was very interesting to understand what is eco labelling. Will be mindful and conscious when choosing furnitures or renovation materials in future. Thanks again for the interesting and fun 8 weeks course."

"It is easy to see that the tutor knows what he is talking about. His easy approach to creating a plan was excellent and gave great insight to the process and what I need to do."

"It fulfilled everything it set out to do plus more. A damn good course provided by a really good tutor. I would recommend this to others. We talked through the theory and were helped with creating real story boards ."

"Thanks so much for delivering such a great class. It’s great to learn something new and be able to plan applying it practically. I’m looking at things in a completely different way and enjoying each week’s new lesson immensely. All the information is especially useful as we are planning a renovation early next year."

"This course was well organised and he is a knowledgeable and patient teacher. I learnt more than I expected on this course – he was an excellent teacher who shared his extensive knowledge with us in a well organised, practical and approachable format."

"The tutor was very knowledgeable and presented the information in an interesting and engaging way through software and social media platforms that I hadn’t used before. I enjoyed learning these new skills as well as the theory and then using them in the assignments really stretched me. Fantastic and scary all at the same time. A really enjoyable experience."

Avoid disappointment. Enrol early.
