Furniture Design

The Furniture Design Program is a wood-based program that focuses on the design and construction of furniture and functional objects within the context of contemporary culture. It integrates creative and technical processes necessary to build objects with structural logic and visual relevance.

The sequence of courses follows a progression of teaching joinery, tools, machines, materials, and furniture forms. Significant discussion of history, aesthetics, and context will augment technical instruction.
