Custom Furniture: Design and Build (Spring 2014)
Master craftspeople have been making furniture one piece at a time for centuries. There is just something about these unique works that can't be duplicated in a factory. This introductory class will examine the basic philosophy of contemporary furniture design and construction, focusing on design, drawing, building, and critique.
Each student will be able to design and construct a piece of furniture using materials such as wood, glass, plastics, or off-the-shelf components. Depending on project choices, students will learn woodworking or other skills to create their designs. Shop experience is not required, but is helpful. / Facilities fee of $50 in addition to the tuition. / Open to students ages 18 and above.
The class meeting time has changed FROM 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m TO 9:00 a.m.-noon.
