Please bring the following to class:

  • Measurements of your living space – in millimetres. You only need a rough sketch of your space, including length and width, as well as the position of doors, windows and fireplace if you have one.  
  • Don’t stress, this outline is not meant to be perfect and it does not have to be drawn to scale. We just need the basics of your individual space so that learning can be more personal. We will focus on the living space but if yours is an open plan and includes dining/kitchen, then take measurements of the entire space. Round up to the nearest centimetre and do not include furnitur

You will also need:

  • Lots of printed pictures (e.g. magazine clippings/catalogue shots) of furniture, art and accessories, such as lamps and ornaments to use for your mood board. Bring more than you need so you can edit and perhaps surprise yourself and select things you may not have considered.
  • Magazines you don’t mind cutting inspiration from.
  • Notepad, pencil, black pen/texta (for outlining) – plus a calculator.

[Notification of class cancellation will be advised 48 hours prior to the course commencement date. We advise to purchase your materials only when you have received email confirmation that your class is proceeding as scheduled. We make every effort to ensure that our classes proceed, to avoid disappointment.]
