Description

The action packed INTERMEDIATE Classes in Furniture Design offer a more advanced level to the Furniture Design and Furniture Design for Beginners short courses. The course is ideal for those who have attended the above courses, completed a degree in art and design or who have a pro-active interest in Furniture Design, with some existing skills in the subject area.

Intermediate courses are designed to be a natural extension to the Furniture Design for Beginners courses by Rock Galpin. So all Intermediate 1, 2 and 3 courses may be taken consecutively or as a one-off class individually to top up and develop certain Furniture and Product Design related skills.

This course is perfect for those wishing to explore their own creativity in furniture/product design as this course is all about the skills required for developing creative thinking, exploring ideas using the design process. You will take your own initial design concept and design direction on a creative journey, investigating and testing your concept to a point where you will define these designs in drawings and finally present them as final sketch concepts, suitable for client presentations. It is ideal, but not essential, if you have previous design and research experience and wish to take this knowledge to the next level. You will need to bring to the course an idea for a furniture design that you wish to explore and experiment where you will learn how to take this from an initial idea through stages to the next level through conceptualising, linear concept development and evaluation, consideration of manufacturing processes and materials, concept development, initial sketch modeling and design development and finally design presentation. 

Taken as a stand-alone course the program aims to aid applications for design research, design management, marketing and advertising courses, or combined with Intermediate 1 and 3 to develop an advanced level in furniture design as a compressed substitute, or to lead on, to a degree in the subject, Product Design or professional practice.
