  1. Principles of Furniture & Joinery Design Semester 1 & 2 Jennifer Byrne 2014

  2. Principles of Furniture & Joinery Design • 10 ECT module • Semester 1 = 50% 5 ECT • 5 ECT aprox 100 learning hours • Semester 1 • Class contact 36hrs • Independent Learning aprox. 64hrs • Blended learning consisting of class contact and online learning and research. • No Final exam. • Portfolio of coursework Jennifer Byrne 2014

  3. Principles of Furniture & Joinery Design • Linked module : • Principles of Furniture & Joinery Design 10 Ects • Bespoke Machining Techniques & Furniture 2 10 Ects • 3D CAD 5 Ects • Wood Finishing 10 Ects • One project is common to all of the above modules with many learning outcomes from each module being assessed using this project. Jennifer Byrne 2014

  4. Module Descriptor • This module introduces the student to the concepts of design with regard to creating bespoke items of Furniture / Joinery. • It enables them to explore and understand the process from conception through to tender, from designing from a brief to sourcing materials, to evaluating production costs, to presentation. • The module is also designed to provide the student with the theoretical knowledge of the history and development of Furniture / Joinery. Jennifer Byrne 2014

  5. Module Aim • The aim of this module is to provide the student with the tools and knowledge to design and create items to the description in a given brief. • By completing the design process from start to finish the student will be provided with the confidence to go out into the work force with a better understanding of the whole designing process in relation to real life business. • It also aims to supply students with the theoretical information to manufacture furniture and joinery. Jennifer Byrne 2014

  6. Module Aim (Cont.) • To familiarise students with the process of laminating, bending and shaping timber as required for furniture and joinery construction. • To ensure students recognise details of historical furniture and joinery and to understand the development of period furniture and joinery styles. Jennifer Byrne 2014

  7. Learning Outcomes: • Appreciate the various stages of the design process. • Apply techniques, processes and methodologies for creating designs. • Recognise and sketch the features and characteristics of historical furniture and joinery. • Demonstrate an understanding of the theoretical elements and their application as required in the construction of furniture and joinery Jennifer Byrne 2014

  8. Learning Outcomes: (Cont) • Display theoretical knowledge of the lamination, bending and shaping of component parts. • Display theoretical knowledge of constructing veneered patterns. • Measure, design and draw out plans for a kitchen& produce a materials list and costing for same. • Carry out research on a designer and or artefact . • Given a brief, produce a detailed report from designing through to the completion of the end product including a 10 min oral presentation. Jennifer Byrne 2014

  9. Module Content: • Design Process: various methods used for design process • Creation: using creative thinking to create 3D designs, showcase them by freehand and or CAD drawings • Material selection: Understanding the limits of different materials and knowing the jointing used in various situations. Application of problem solving techniques, methods and processes. • Furniture / Joinery manufacturing theory. • Timber laminations, bending and shaping. Jennifer Byrne 2014

  10. Module Content: (Cont.) • Pattern veneering. • Furniture and joinery sizes. • History of furniture / Joinery • Communication : Expand on previous communication skills and include them in the over all process of dealing with a customer’s brief. • Carry out research on a designer and or artefact. • Kitchen design and planning. Jennifer Byrne 2014

  11. Module Delivery • Contact time 3 hours per week for two semesters. • Students are expected to practice, complete, or expand on class work outside class hours. • Independent learning is further encouraged through course-work projects. • Group learning and peer learning is encouraged in classroom activities and coursework. Jennifer Byrne 2014

  12. Course-work: Assignment • Completed Portfolio of Coursework: Numerous course-work projects covering all of the learning out comes. • Design an item of furniture or joinery given a brief/specification demonstrating an understanding of the module content. • Assignments will be issued to cover the areas outlined in the Module Content. • Complete a detailed project from a given brief • Evidence of a depth of understanding of areas of theory relevant to the development of the projects • Oral Presentations 10 minute Jennifer Byrne 2014

  13. Course-work: Assignment • Course-work: Assignments • Design the artefact. • Supply evidence of a depth of understanding of areas of theory relevant to the development of the project. • Supply materials list, cutting list, work schedule, sequence of events sketches and working drawings of table. • Oral Presentation 10 minute Jennifer Byrne 2014
