Dazed by Design | Trade School Dudley

Helena will introduce you to the basics of design tools you can use on your computer or tablet, such as Canva and InDesign. During the class you could create a poster or visual assets for sharing on social media. The class will include an exploration of free and subscription tools.

Note: Please bring your own laptop or tablet, and download a free trial of InDesign a day or so before the class if you’d like to explore it. Please also come with an idea of something you’d like to create in the class, such as a poster.

Trade School is open to all

Trade School is open to everyone, if you would like to bring children or babies with you just let us know when you sign up. They are welcome to join in the class, or simply be with you while you learn and they play, read or rest.

Trade School is great way of sharing skills and talents. Anyone can teach something they are skilled at, or passionate about. Learners ‘pay’ for class with a small barter item. Or you can offer to share your skills by teaching a Trade School Dudley class later in the year.
