Dodington Design School


Are you wondering who these two beautiful women are? Well, to me they are my mum, Tracey (left) and my aunt, Leigh (right), however to any aspiring interior designers out there they are the co-creators of Dodington Design School, which offers courses and workshops specializing in interior design throughout the home. 

Tracey has always had a passion for taking old, unloved homes and creating masterpieces, our own house for example. What was once a renovators nightmare has been turned into the beautiful, modern home we now live in. Whilst renovating our house, mum also kept traveling back and forth between London and our home to receive her interior design degree from the prestigious KLC London, and with that degree she now wants to help others with their homes. 

The workshops offered range from cushion making to the necessities needed for a roman blind. Leigh, from a young age, has been in love with sewing and textiles and received a diploma in Art & Design; specializing in curtain design and making. With 30+ years experience in the field, Leigh has a talent that she is willing to share with others, not only in curtain making, but also soft furnishings and dressmaking ranging from children to bridal gowns. 

Since the beginning of Dodington Design School, Tracey and Leigh have renovated their workspace by knocking through what was once the garage area and expanding. This is what, the now, main area of the school used to look like..


Now, however, it looks like this..




It's somewhat like a real life episode of Grand Designs [a British television show for all of those Americans out there]. They have created a masterpiece and are growing their business day by day. Not only do they teach people the art of interior design, but they also use their own work as a canvas - the bench you see in the pictures, for example, was hand crafted and made by the company itself. 

If you would like to get into the interior design field or merely would like to see what all the fuss is about then please book yourself on a workshop at https://dodingtondesignschool.co.uk where you will be able to find out all the information on the courses offered. Also, if you know a friend that has just moved into a new home and this is the idea of the perfect present then gift certificates are also available. Go on, get your inner designer out and have a go!
