2019 SPAB Scholar Bethan Watson describes a highlight of her Scholarship year so far.
News - Scholarship
A nine-month, hands-on learning experience aimed at craftspeople, architects, surveyors and engineers.
The SPAB Scholarship is a prestigious training scheme for young building professionals to gain practical building repair skills from the some of the UK’s most experienced craftspeople. Surveyor Daniel Shemming and architects Christian Montez, Holly Spilsbury and Bethan Watson have embarked on a programme of site, workshop and studio visits across the country.
As our new Scholars prepare for their year of conservation discoveries, we look to a valued past Scholar. In June 2018 local Scholar Peter Carey (1977) showed us behind the scenes of the redevelopment of the Bristol Old Vic Theatre, a building that he had been passionate about for decades.
The SPAB Scholars explored Luton Hoo Estate, a traditional privately-owned country estate, with architect Chris Garrand.
