Course content

This course is for the designer who wishes to develop furniture, interior products and quality artefacts.

It has a focus on the finer-end of the market, looking at opportunities for batch, low-run production.

You'll explore how furniture and product design production is changing and consider the influence of digital technology and media. You'll also challenge pre-conceived attitudes about the relationship between traditional craft skills, new technology and modern manufacture.

Students on this course benefit from the collaboration and support of established links with commercial organisations and industry professionals.
