Back in August I applied for a scholarship from the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust and, following a trip to London on a wet and windy November day, I was delighted to hear that I’d been successful.
So, I’m now a QEST scholar. The award means that my course fees are secure and I’m able to devote more time to studying it but it also brings so much more as it comes with a whole package of ongoing support. I’m honoured to be part of a network of craftspeople, artists and artisans keeping traditional crafts alive in Britain. You can found out more about the QEST scholarships here .
In the new year you will find my profile on the QEST website alongside the other 2019 alumni, and you can read about us all in the next issue of QEST magazine. I will be posting more news about this.
