Rory Drinan (Furniture Design):
‘The tutors are highly skilled, knowledgeable, patient and approachable. There is a strong emphasis on experimentation and exploration through materials. Course modules are well structured, outcome driven, and encourage innovation. For me, the course promotes an in-depth understanding of design thinking and manufacturing processes that are applicable to so many areas of design and manufacturing industries. I have considerably broadened my knowledge of design and workshop processes and have now found employment in an area where my new skills are utilized and built upon. I would strongly recommend the course to anyone interested in exploring their creativity through a wide range of materials and processes.’
