DESIGN COURSES
Certificate in Design

Tutor:  Alison Francis
Duration:  6–7 months
Course fee:  $160.00 New Zealand member; $180.00 Overseas member

The Design course is intended to be of value to all fibre workers so that you can apply it to your own medium. The aim of the course is to provide experience and encourage awareness of the Design process rather than develop the techniques of your craft. Course theories are introduced gradually so that people who haven’t tackled the subject before don’t become overwhelmed.

The course includes six modules, each of which explores different aspects of the design process. All your assignments are marked carefully and returned with your tutor’s comments and any help you may need. You can contact your tutor at any time to ask questions or address problems that you may have with the course.
