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 suitable for those who have attended a previous Furniture Design course and wish to further develop their hands on work in three dimensions, or for those who simply wish to get their hands dirty and develop their skills in model making. The course starts in the studio but is nearly all workshop based training you in how to work with card, board, wire, rod, mesh, foam, wood, metal and plastics and exploring and developing your ideas using the design process, 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 own final presentation design.

Taken as a stand-alone course the program aims to aid applications for designer making, craft design and 3D design courses, or combined with Intermediate 1 and 2 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.
