Course summary

This programme allows you to specialise in the design and production of furniture. There are two main pathways, allowing you to specialise either in industrial furniture production or on the smaller-scale, more bespoke end of the market. Both options encourage you to explore your creativity while building your practical and theoretical skills.

Course overview

The Furniture Designer-Maker pathway allows you explore the possibilities of hand-making on a small scale, producing highly crafted furniture for creative, commercial and cultural contexts. If you choose to specialise as a Furniture Maker for Industry you will focus more on the industrial and commercial manufacturing processes needed for mass production. Students on the two pathways share core modules and work together on collaborative projects, which build your problem-solving, team-working and communication skills.

As you progress through the course, projects become more technical and design briefs more challenging. Our small class sizes mean that we get to know you and your practice as an individual, and can support you on your own personal journey. Our experienced and enthusiastic team of academic and technical staff are here to help you reach your creative potential and develop the practical skills to turn your ideas into reality.

The technical abilities you will develop include 3D printing, orthographic drawing, schematic and thematic sketching, CAD and CAM, rendering and prototyping. You will also gain the creative skills needed to solve complex design problems and the business skills needed to find your niche in the market. Theory is backed up by practical workshops and kept relevant through real-world application. Competitions, client projects and other opportunities to showcase your work will allow you to build a professional portfolio to start your career.
