furniture design school?

ok- i’m looking for a school with an awesome furniture design program…it’s gotta be hands-on (not just theoretical). Heard something about Parson’s…Pratt, i dunno. Also, has anybody heard of CFC (center for furniture craftmanship)? it’s in Rockport, Maine. It’s just a one year program, I could give a rip about a degree…

$$$$$$one more thing, what’s it going to cost to giddee-up on one of these things? (ref’ing to Pratt & Pars)

Ummm, sorry one last thing, does anyone think a california kid is going to have a hard time fitting into the whole new england thing?
