This course will serve as an introduction to the field of woodworking and furniture design. Students will begin investigating these subjects thru projects that explore material, form, and function. Small assignments will examine the use and maintenance of hand tools, practicing examples of joinery, and learning how to use and shape material. Larger Projects will explore the idea of designing and building objects. We will discuss the role function plays in influencing or being influenced by design and what fine craftsmanship is and how it can be achieved.
We will also briefly explore the history of furniture leading up to the current studio furniture movement, the history of the lumberyard, and take a field trip to the UNH sawmill to hug trees. No experience required.
