Wood Oriented Furniture Design, continuation 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 already have some experience in design and wood on a university level, and who want to develop within the field.
Throughout this course you will follow the second semester of the BFA Program in Wood Oriented Furniture Design. During one semester you will have the opportunity to deepen your 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 are expected to further develop your working methods and reflection on your own work, as well as communicating your choice of methods, both in writing and orally. Continuation modules in 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 Academy of Design and Crafts, HDK, at Steneby. The 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.
The course is situated at HDK at Steneby in Dals Långed. Admissions are made subject to availability in our workshops.

Due to the current situation, the education at HDK-Valand this autumn will be carried out to a limited extent on campus. This means that courses will be held both through distance education and on site in workshops and student workplaces. We are awaiting instructions regarding the spring semester 2021.
A decision will be made by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Gothenburg in November on the basis of recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Sweden due to Covid-19. This means that we, for the time being, cannot say with certainty which parts of the education will take place on campus during the spring and which will be given through distance education.
We also want to inform you that certain courses, or course elements, may not be completed during the spring semester 2021. Stay updated about the University of Gothenburg's guidelines due to the Corona pandemic here.
