The Furniture major provides comprehensive skills-oriented courses of study intended primarily for students who ultimately wish to work as furniture designers/makers. The fundamental basis of the workshop is to train its students to think, explore and work with forms in wood, plastics and metals with an emphasis on professional practice. A Visiting Artist program establishes contact with professionals and focuses on clients, design, making, and such outcomes as exhibiting and marketing.
Students who complete this major will have the skills and knowledge to:
- demonstrate skills and knowledge of the practices, languages, forms, materials, technologies and techniques in furniture making.
- apply relevant skills and knowledge to realise artefacts and forms of creative expression.
