Study Abroad

Historic Crafts: Architecture & Interiors

July 2023

Our three-week summer study abroad course is for students who would like to deepen their understanding of historic preservation, and of Britain’s unique architectural history and heritage, through a hands-on exploration of traditional craft skills for buildings and interiors. These will include stone carving and decoration, gilding, verre églomisé, and mould making and casting. We set these crafts in their historical context by visiting some of the great buildings and museums of London and Cambridge, where we introduce students to key styles and to the factors that have shaped European and British architecture from the Middle Ages until the present day.
