The training academy of Sixth Sense Interiors, one of the respected establishments in the Nigerian designing industry, is set to commence its nine-week training programme.
The academy’s new session, scheduled to begin on September 9, 2016 and end on November 11, will give students exposure to various modules such as introduction to design, principles and fundamentals of design, colours and psychology of colours. Beside the fundamentals, students are subsequently introduced to the gritty aspects of design, the business aspects of running a design outfit (such as dealing with artisans and contractors, managing and sequencing a project) and a terminal personal project.
The academy, in addition to the tutored courses, also affords opportunities for first-hand practical experience during training, which enables students to build personal design portfolios leading to the award of certificate at the end of the session. Established in 2005, Sixth Sense Interiors has been diligently run by its founder, Temitope Olagbegi, as to become one of the notable interior design brands in Nigeria. Of the academy, Olagbegi said: “The school is unique because it utilises a fledging design practice. The studios are creative environments, enabling students to work with current samples, pattern books and lots of exciting specialist resources.”
The curriculum, which is practical-oriented, is drawn from her considerable professional experiences. Sixth Sense has consistently won numerous industry awards including Brand of the Year in 2010.
