Young furniture designers to exhibit pieces at Pitt Rivers Museum

First published in News

Young furniture designers’ work will go on display at the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford.

All objects in the exhibition have been designed and made by second-year foundation degree students from the Rycotewood Furniture Centre, at City of Oxford College.

Drew Smith, who teaches the course, said: “Through a series of visits to the Museum the students have been inspired by the exhibits and the Museum itself.

“They have used a range of materials and processes to create practical and conceptual pieces. English yew and reclaimed timber sit alongside steel nails and oak.

“The processes used include veneering, wood turning and metalwork.”

The That’s Entertainment exhibition runs from Friday, April 4, to Monday, May 26.
