About the Course

This is a freestanding course that includes a full-time semester study in design with specialization in Wood Oriented Furniture Design. The course is aimed at those who want an introduction to artistic studies at academic level in the field of design and wood. You follow the first semester of the BFA Program in Wood Oriented Furniture Design. During one semester you will have the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding of wood materials and techniques. You explore different techniques, both proficiently and expressively, based on different tasks and themes, with starting point in the concept of material, body and space. You get support in developing working methods and reflection on your own work, as well as communicating your choice of methods, both in writing and orally. Visual studies and literacy, as well as theory and history, are also included in the course. Teaching takes the form of lectures and exercises with supervision, workshops and briefings. During the spring semester there is a continuation course that should be applied for separately.

The course is part of the international environment at the HDK Steneby. Language of instruction is English. If you are Swedish-speaking, you can perform a few modules in Swedish, if you wish to. Applications can be submitted in English or Swedish.
