EDAD330 The Art of Furniture Design I: Fundamentals of Design and Construction 3 cr.


In this course, students initiate and are guided through a hands-on design/build project based on fundamental tenets of furniture design. Students will come to class with work from Design Processes for Furniture Design to use as the basis for their project. This studio shop course will begin with a review of design fundamentals and the concept design process. If necessary, concepts are refined through additional drawings and maquette model making as preparation for the concluding phase: completion of the final product. This class will also be open to students outside of the certificate program who have experience in basic hand tool use and maintenance as well as a comfort level for work in standing machine power tools.
