Mount Stuart Trust learns about Royal Collections from The Attingham Trust
Our head of collections joined the Royal Collections Studies ‘Class of 2019’ this September.
Last week, Charlotte Rostek attended the 10-day Royal Collections Studies class at the Attingham Trust in Windsor.
The Attingham Trust is an educational charitable trust. It offers specialised study courses for those who are professionally engaged in the study, care and interpretation of historic houses and palaces and their collections and garden and landscape settings, whether they work in the museum, university, historic house, or conservation sector.
The course provides an overview of the patronage and collecting of the Kings and Queens of England/United Kingdom, from the 15th century onwards. The Royal Collections Studies course was established in 1996, with teaching made up of lectures and tutorials, as well as visits to both the occupied and unoccupied palaces in and around London.
