The Commonwealth Heritage Forum and City & Guilds of London Art School are pleased to offer

Introduction to Global Conservation: Commonwealth Summer School

Be inspired by this rare opportunity to learn historic conservation skills in one of the few art schools in Britain still teaching traditional craftsmanship. In the first week, you will learn a range of stonework and masonry skills offered at the City & Guilds of London Art School. In the second week, you will learn the specific skills that are relevant to the preparation and use of lime mortar, lime render, lime plaster, lime wash and limecrete. During the programme you will have the opportunity to hear a talk on the philosophy of conservation, allowing you to synthesise practical experience with broader cultural understandings. 

The Summer School will run for two weeks from 22 July - 2 August 2024.

Level: Beginner to Intermediate.

The Commonwealth Heritage Forum will award up to twenty-four full bursaries to include: course fees, including accommodation and lunch meals whilst on campus at City & Guilds; a stipend for sundries and weekday breakfast and dinner meals; return air travel from your home country to London Heathrow airport; travel from London Heathrow airport to the short-term student accommodation in London; and UK visitor visa costs (if applicable). 

The deadline is Monday 8 April 2024 and candidates can apply by emailing their documents to the account.
