In partnership with the Farnham Adult Education Centre, Transition Town Farnham is proud to present a one-day taster course on sustainable interior design.
The ‘Taste of Interior Design’ will be run on Friday 12th June 2009, 10am-4pm, led by Gayle Souter-Brown, a local sustainable interior designer.
As the credit crunch bites it is increasingly useful to know how to ‘design and/or make your own’.
This taster course will cover both the theory and practice of interior design. Textures, fabrics, using colour, shape and flow will all be covered. In particular the course will identify techniques to make the most of what we have – natural daylight and fresh air, materials with insulation properties, natural materials that are sustainable — and will include a visit to a local interior design showroom.
Sensible, practical, inspirational interior design is nothing new. It relies on a practical response to climate, lifestyle and available materials. It is how people decorated their homes for thousands of years. It is only recently that oil based paints and fabrics have been used in commercial and domestic situations. It is only since WW2 that planners have thought the past needed preserving rather than conserving. By keeping the good parts of the past and adding the best ideas of today we can ensure a viable future for tomorrow –- keeping our homes alive, and responsive to change.
There is a maximum of 12 students per class, so do book early.
