At BDA, we don't just teach, we encourage you to access and nurture your own natural creativity and gain confidence whilst developing skills. Be it learning how to design spaces to live, work or play in; trendspotting and forecasting, or creating written content for industry blogs and social network feeds, BDA has a course for it!
We also have an ever-changing programme of specialist Workshops and Masterclasses to help develop your practical and technical skills. From learning computer apps, including AutoCAD, Sketchup and Photoshop to help take your presentations to the next level; 'how to' design specialist areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, or that much yearned-for garden room; to getting your business up and running by enhancing your marketing and entrepreneurial flair. Keep an eye on our calendar for new dates.
Set up to fit around busy schedules, with the classroom-based learning delivered weekdays, weekends and/or evenings, BDA offers a flexible programme which is fun and inspiring: from 1-day taster sessions to 6-month intensive diplomas, from evening workshops to resi-weekenders. All led by accomplished professionals: designers, makers, entrepreneurs and business leaders... ready to pass on their experience and skills to help you get creative!
So take a look. Sign up. And come along. Make this one of the most inspiring things you've done in a long while!
