Interior Design For the same price as calling out an Interior Designer, you can attend our popular course which has featured in the Sunday Times and continues to inform and encourage new students each term. It gives many inspiring ideas and tips to make the most of your home and avoid expensive mistakes. Topics cover clever lighting, room transformations, using colours effectively and much, much more. As well as theory, most classes involve enjoyable practical project work that involves a small extra charge for materials on the night. This will appeal to anyone who enjoys the benefits of a beautiful home.
“Great course, I really enjoyed it. Lovely atmosphere and the practical aspect was very stimulating and the theory very interesting”
Interior Design Continuation
Through popular demand, this is a progression for any past students who have already completed our established Interior Design course. It is a further 10 weeks of a challenging, informative and friendly class where you’ll continue to develop awareness and learn the steps towards creating your own successful homes. Through a series of enjoyable practical projects, you will build up an understanding of the process of designs and where to purchase relevant materials. These projects will incur a small extra charge. You’ll continue to be encouraged to maximise your home’s potential. This knowledge will add to what you have already learned in the first term.
“Delighted that I did the Continuation course, it was really worth it. I really loved the practical classes”
NEW Introduction to Musicianship
In this course, you will learn how to understand, identify, construct and use music notation, musical symbols and the vocabulary of music notation which will enable you to communicate clearly about music and communicate your ideas through music notation, with the view that music theory understands music as a technical art form. This will provide you with the basic skills for reading and understanding musical scores, for discussing musical ideas and equip you with the basic ingredients for writing music. As music notation has been traditionally taught as a handwritten art, newer forms of technology and software means that music notation can be digitally written, documented and listened to. In this course, you will learn by introduction how to use one type of music notation software to practice basic music notation skills. You will learn to better understand and identify musical instruments in the orchestra and how they interact. In class, we will listen to samples of music through the ages and from different eras navigating our way through early music to nineteenth century instrumental music to film music, to get to know the composer, the type of music they composed, the purpose and value of their music, current use (if any) of that music and appreciate their place in history.
The Creative Writing course explores creativity along with structuring and editing work. The focus will be on the essential ingredients of dramatic narrative: conflict, character, contrast, movement and theme. Short stories, novels, poetry, plays and film will be dealt with, as will comedy and children’s writing. People will be encouraged to develop strong individual writing styles and to produce at least one completed work. You may opt to submit assessment work in order to achieve the QQI Level 5 Creative Writing 5N0690 Minor Award.
