Here at the National Design Academy we believe that education should be accessible to all which is why we offer online courses with the option of attending design workshops throughout the year.

Book your workshop place

The courses offered at the National Design Academy are predominantly online distance learning courses. Whilst we whole heartedly believe that this is the most beneficial and flexible way for our students to learn, we also appreciate that at times it could seem more detached than a traditional attended course.

Consequently, we run regular in-studio workshops that are day-long, face-to-face courses that allow you the opportunity to come into our design studios in Nottingham, meet fellow interior design students and tutors and increase your knowledge of certain elements of design.

The workshops that we run are designed to develop the elements of your knowledge and skill base to further enhance both your level of work on the course and your employability options following graduation.

How much does a day-long workshop cost?

The workshops are £75 for NDA students and £90 for non-NDA students and can be booked online or by calling our enrolment team on 0115 9123 412.

What time do the workshops start?

All of our workshops run from 9:30am – 4:30pm and are held in our design studios in Nottingham.

How many people will be in the workshops?

We pride ourselves on high quality course delivery and consequently, we limit the number of students who can enrol on each workshop to 12. We believe that you learn better in a smaller class as you will have more opportunities to ask questions and discuss with your tutor any specific aspects of the workshop that you may be unsure about.

All of our workshops are booked on a first-come first-served basis, so we advise you to enrol in advance to avoid disappointment.
