Course Description

This is a dynamic, well-structured course delivered full-time over a calendar year January to December. Part-time study by negotiation. During the year, students have the opportunity to combine in-depth theoretical research with creative designing. Students negotiate their own research topic, which, although centred on furniture, can cross boundaries of interest. Brief introductory projects are followed by live design projects and a course of lectures on various aspects of production technology, contextual studies and industrial organisation. The self directed personal project research programme runs parallel to all other curricular activity, and is set in context by a dissertation which is submitted at the beginning of the final semester. The course is very fortunate to maintain: Small group sizes, ensuring high level of staff and student interaction. Live industrial projects and frequent contact with the world outside college. Excellent programme of guest speakers. International study visit. Track record of graduate success. Freedom from accepted norms, allowing design, craft, industry, materials and philosophical approaches. Excellent CAD facilities and software. Friendly studio and workshop environment. Huge range of workshop facilities. Internet, telephone and facsimile access. Contacts and materials library. We encourage confidence, originality, individuality, creativity, and emphasise the importance of working with others. Bursaries and scholarships may be available for this course. Please enquire on application for more details.
