Construction

“It is good for the soul to create with our hands.” This is probably why some trade workers, including those working in construction, plumbing and electricity, are some of the happiest in the UK according to a new survey.

Course Overview

You will conduct some research around an idea that you are interested in, and then design and make a furniture product. Initially in the taught sessions you will develop joinery skills by creating a 'set model' featuring a range of joints, and methods; you will then progress to building your own simple piece of furniture within the sessions, with guidance and support from the tutor.

Entry Requirements

Some basic practical experience of handling tools and working with wood is desirable, but not essential.
