The Furniture design course teaches you how to work with various materials. You will learn to saw, turn, plane, sand and drill. You will make your own piece of furniture based on your own design. The journey from design to realisation involves learning about the following aspects: the language of form, contemporary designers and their philosophy, recycling/upcycling, types of materials and construction.
