This hands-on practical course has the aim of developing your fine woodworking and design skills ready for employment in the furniture industry using the modern machines and hand tools in our specialist workshop.
Professional furniture making is an exciting career choice as it involves designing and making bespoke pieces of furniture such as cabinets, tables, chairs, and office furniture. As well as developing your practical and design skills further, you will design your own quality furniture. The design studio is where you will learn the background theory of working in wood and constructing furniture, alongside the design and industry skills.
Units may include:
You will be assessed through practical projects, a portfolio of evidence, assignments and examinations.
You could progress to our Level 2 Apprenticeship in furniture making or Level 3 Diploma in Furniture Design & Manufacture, or explore a variety of career opportunities in the furniture and woodworking industry.
Alternatively, you could enrol on a Foundation Degree in Furniture Studies, a National Diploma in art, design or craft, or any other design-based subject dependent on achieving an appropriate level of qualification.
|Course Title||Practical Furniture Making Diploma Level 2|
You need a Level 1 furniture qualification or a similar woodworking qualification.
An apprenticeship has been the best option for me since I benefit from working in the industry as well as gaining a qualification. College days give me time to work on my assignments and explore features in the software I haven’t covered at work. During the rest of the week, I develop client relationships which help build my confidence and improve my ability to express ideas.
