This intensive intermediate short course is perfect for those wishing to explore their creativity in furniture or product design. You will develop core skills required for developing creative thinking and 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 concepts by refining and defining your designs in drawings. The outcome will be the a final sketch suitable for client presentations.
It is ideal, but not essential, that 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 with. You will learn how to take your initial idea through stages to the next level. This will be done through:
- linear concept development and evaluation
- consideration of manufacturing processes and materials
- concept development
- initial sketch modelling
- design development
- final design presentation
Taken as a stand-alone, this course can support applications for studies in design research, management and marketing courses. Combined with Furniture Design Intermediate 1 and 3 courses , it will give you a solid foundation for applying to a degree in product design.
Furniture Design Intermediate 1, 2 and 3 are designed to be a natural progression from our Furniture Design for Beginners. They may be taken consecutively or individually to target specific areas of furniture and product design.
Entry requirements: Basic knowledge and skills in furniture design are required. You should have completed either our Furniture Design or our Furniture Design for Beginners course before attempting an intermediate level.
