Professional Furniture Design and Making course



The daily schedule is designed to mix wood working theory with lots of practical experience and the opportunity for one-to-one tuition. The School prides itself on a friendly, supportive learning environment, where each student can learn at their own pace, secure in the knowledge that they are receiving the best technical and design education. Students work at their individual benches, and as their confidence increases and knowledge grows, students start to learn from each other too. One week of each term is set aside for furniture restoration work. Students are assisted to prepare and execute their own work plan under professional practice conditions.
