National Art and Design Saturday Club: Furniture
The Club gives young people in years 9, 10 and 11 the unique opportunity to study the process of designing and making furniture at City of Oxford College’s renowned centre of excellence, the Rycotewood Furniture Centre, every Saturday morning for 16 weeks, free of charge.
As well as benefiting from 16 weeks of inspiring classes, students exhibit work in their own Summer Show at Somerset House, London.
They are also given the opportunity to attend a master class from one of the UK’s most influential artists or designers.
The aim of the course is to provide young people with a safe space to build their self-esteem and confidence by exploring their identity and talents.
Please note: The course will run term-time only.
Following the course, you could progress onto City & Guilds in Furniture at City of Oxford College.
The course will be taught by Harriet Speed, founder of This Girl Makes.
It will provide students with several opportunities to experiment with different techniques and approaches to develop their skills as a designer maker, in order to eventually make a small piece of their own.
The Club is equally suitable for boys and girls of all abilities with an interest in art, design and woodwork.
