Sheridan’s Honours Bachelor of Craft and Design – Furniture program teaches you to design and create furniture for a career you’ll love.
Design and make outstanding furniture
In Sheridan’s Furniture Studio, design and making are interconnected. You’ll gain real-world, hands-on experience designing and fabricating furniture pieces by incorporating an understanding of structure, function and aesthetics, creating beautiful and functional pieces. From the moment you begin, you’ll explore your creativity, develop and produce your ideas and test the limits of innovation.
Connecting furniture with society
Our students learn not only how to design and make furniture, but also how it fits into society. You’ll have the opportunity to work with real clients and build a solid portfolio to launch your career. You’ll also have a chance to make a difference in marginalized communities – in design collaborations with users, you’ll create furniture that meets their needs and builds your profession.
Get a foundation in all Craft and Design studios
Our program provides a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to Craft and Design. You’ll major in your studio of choice while building skills in the four other disciplines. You’ll work with students and faculty from across all five studios on interdisciplinary projects that bring together a range of expertise and experiences to explore the potential of contemporary art, craft and design.
This program contains a mandatory internship for all students during the summer (May-August) between the 3rd and 4th years.
Internships are a form of work-integrated learning that links classroom learning with work experience within a professional environment. Internship work terms are related to the academic studies of the student and may be paid or unpaid. The work terms provide an opportunity to learn by doing. You’ll apply theory to practice, develop a meaningful view of the working world, and cultivate an awareness of yourself as a professional.
Many graduates are local and international leaders in the field, finding employment in top design firms or establishing independent studio practices. You may choose positions in design and manufacturing industries, arts service organizations, or galleries and retail operations that specialize in craft and design, or pursue a graduate education at a variety of universities throughout North America and abroad.
