Taught by: Rock Galpin.
This course is suitable for those who have attended a previous furniture design course and wish to further develop their practical three dimension work, or for those who simply wish to get their hands dirty and develop their skills in model making. We will start in the studio but most of the course will take place in the workshop. You will practice how to work with card, board, wire, rod, mesh, foam, wood, metal and plastics. It is an opportunity for you to explore and develop your ideas, from initial experiments, 1:1 mockups and tests to scaled models and a final presentation scaled model of your design.
You will be supervised and guided by expert workshop technicians at Central Saint Martins to develop your own furniture designs in 3D, working with a range of exciting materials and making processes to produce your final presentation design.
Taken as a stand-alone, the programme aims to aid applications for design research, management and marketing courses. Combined with our Furniture Design Intermediate 1 and 2 short courses , it will help you develop an advanced level in furniture design as a compressed substitute, or to lead on, to a degree in product design.
Furniture Design Intermediate 1, 2 and 3 courses are designed to be a natural extension to the Furniture Design for Beginners course by Rock Galpin. They may be taken consecutively or individually to top up and develop 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 short course or our Furniture Design for Beginners course before attempting the intermediate programmes.
