Some of the Things that Make our Furniture Design Course Stand Out

Do you dream of building a rewarding career in professional furniture design and restoration? There are still some places on our furniture making and furniture restoration course starting this October 2013.

He came He saw He conquered. Chippendale School of Furniture.
Our students learn more than 80 woodworking techniques.

Our feedback suggests that our courses are that little bit different:

1. We teach you up to 80 woodworking techniques in just 9 months (other schools take 2 to 3 years to cover the same ground);
2. We lay on lectures, visiting experts, learning from your colleauges and field trips, as well as spending up to 1,400 hours doing practical benchwork on your own projects;
3. We provide all the tools you need – planes, safety gear, routers, chisels, hammers (worth at least £2,500);
4. Your fees include all the wood required to make 3 pieces of furniture, sourced and dried here from local Scottish hardwoods;
5. Our course has a business focus, geared to helping many of our students realise their dreams of setting up their own woodworking and furniture making businesses (a majority of student do!);
6. After the course, new graduates can rent low cost bench space in the adjoining Chippendale Incubator Workshops and benefit from our tutors, tools, woodworking community and network of contacts;
7. Our students enjoy working together in one big workshop – help each other and share banter with colleagues (instead of being split up into small workshops).

But don’t believe us! See what our students say in their feedback or in this video: Ignite your future!
