Funding in Furniture Making: QEST Scholarship - Supporting Excellence in British Craftsmanship

We are really pleased to welcome new student, Jack Relton to the school for a 12 week bespoke course with us. Jack has been awarded a QEST scholarship, which provides the funding for Jack to attend his cabinetmaking course with us. Throughout the 12 weeks, Jack’s focus is to refine and develop his hand skills and hand tool techniques to achieve excellence in his craft. Jack’s work is already really impressive and you can see more at www.jackrelton.com.

QEST are a fantastic trust at the forefront of supporting education and excellence in craft in the UK. They run both apprenticeship schemes and scholarships to fund talent both at entry level and for those looking to reach a level of excellence further into their career. Recipients of QEST funding say that it has provided the essential turning point in their careers.

QEST are soon to open the summer 2019 scholarship and apprenticeship applications. If you’d like to know more about the funding, please see here for more details:
