This Level 1 one-year introduction to the subject of furniture making is ideal if you have no prior skills or knowledge about furniture and wood craft. There is the option of progressing on to our Level 2 and 3 Diplomas.

If you have a creative soul with practical ability, a course in furniture making may be an ideal route to a rewarding career. Furniture design is a specialised field where function and fashion collide. Furniture has evolved and changed with the times, some styles have remained constant throughout the years, while others have drastically changed or become obsolete.

We offer two ways to train in furniture design and making, either full-time at college or part-time as an apprentice. You may wish to start full-time and build your skills and confidence before moving on to an apprenticeship. Whatever your prior knowledge or experience, we can offer you a starting point on the road to a creative and rewarding career.

  What You Will Learn

Essential health and safety principles and be introduced to the workshop and tools you will be using as you work towards staring a career in this creative and rewarding sector.

  Entry Requirements

English and maths at grade 3 or above.

  Progression

The Furniture Making Diploma Level 2 full-time or the apprenticeship.
