Student Industrial Tour Reports

Each year the Young Furniture Makers organise the annual Student Industrial Tour. 30+ students studying a range of furniture related subjects, gather together from across the country in the North West of England for a 3 day tour which gives them an insight into how the furniture industry works.

By visiting businesses who deal with material, design, manufacturing, and retail activities the students get to see a sides of the industry they wouldn’t usually be exposed to. Mixed with a chance to meet like minded people and socialise in the evenings, the event continues to be fun and insightful  for everyone involved.

Below are links to some of the excellent reports that the students have written about their experiences on the 2016  tour and what they felt they learnt from the experience:
