Fellow at work

Danielle Sheard, Structural Paintings

‘I gained a vast amount of varied experience during my year. It allowed me to organise my own work schedule to suit my interests allowing for exploration and development of new skills.

Joy Bunclark, Stained Glass

‘I was thrilled with the wide range of jobs I was involved in over the two years. They varied vastly in historical and artistic content, treatment involved, size and duration. Each one presented different problems and considerations. My mind was constantly working, getting to grips with each project, often working on a few simultaneously. Each one varied a lot in complexity, employing different levels of conservation, restoration or aesthetic awareness. I was allowed access into many houses, churches, cathedrals and studios that I would not otherwise have had’.
