BA (Hons) Product and Furniture Design
Whether you want to pursue a career in craft or design for mass production, making and learning by doing are at the heart of what we do. By combining hands-on making skills with digital fabrication technologies in our extensive workshops you’ll develop your own individual pathway creating useful, useable designs for products, furniture, ceramics, lighting and small batch production.
Create expressive designs for products and services, furniture and artefacts, ceramics and lighting, from one-offs to batch production. Engage with emerging themes including design as a tool for strategic business development, technology as a tool for creating new experiences and social enterprise as a tool to nurture responsible business ideas.
