This is a fantastic course for anyone who would like to gain the confidence to read and create technical drawings for interior design. You will gain first hand practical experience of how to correctly survey a room and draw up plans, elevations, and sections to the standard understood by industry professionals. The tutors are well-established interior designers themselves, who are more than happy to share their vast, and I do mean vast, knowledge of the design industry with you. The course is run very efficiently - I never felt as though I was being rushed through the process. From start to finish it was an utter joy - I only wish I it could have been longer purely because it so much fun!
