NEW DESIGN SKILLS COURSE – STARTING OCT 2017 in Manorhamilton!
We are delighted to announce another opportunity to take this popular, ground-breaking course, scheduled to begin at the start of October 2017 at Leitrim Sculpture Centre, Manorhamilton. After 3 very successful courses delivered in the south of Leitrim, we are thrilled to bring this exciting opportunity to the north of the county. The course is run in partnership with MSLETB and assistance from Leitrim Development Company.
The course aims to provide students with a broad overview of design and digital fabrication. Using a mix of classroom sessions, hands-on lab work and self directed project work, this course will facilitate the learner to engage in a creative design process, appreciate design principles as a problem solving activity and gain an understanding of the role of digital fabrication in a design skillset.
Topics covered will include:
The History Of Design.
Understanding And Interpreting Design Briefs.
The Concepts Of Design Practice.
Material And Manufacturing Processes.
The Tools Of Visualisation And Presentation.
2D drawing & 3D Computer Aided Design.
Digital Fabrication Tools And Fab Labs.
WHO IS IT FOR?
This course would suit those who are thinking of returning to education or considering changing their career path.
