HIS MAJESTY THE KING WILL ATTEND A ‘CELEBRATION OF CRAFT’ RECEPTION AT HIGHGROVE

Friday 8th December 2023

His Majesty The King will attend a festive themed ‘Celebration of Craft’ reception at Highgrove, hosted by The King’s Foundation. The King will meet students, tutors, and graduates from the foundation’s craft programmes.

His Majesty will meet graduates and tutors to see the work produced by The King’s Foundation’s Craft programmes, including the Métiers d’Art Fellowship, the School of Traditional Arts, and the Building Arts Programme.

The King’s Foundation believes it is crucial to preserve the wisdom and knowledge embodied in many traditional buildings that have shaped the historical built environment.

Of the 15,000 students who engage in The King’s Foundation’s education programmes each year, a significant proportion are involved in courses that teach traditional arts and crafts and promote the importance of maintaining skills to a high standard.

Graduates from The King’s Foundation’s programmes typically go on to help conserve and create some of the UK’s most important historic buildings, as well as heritage sites further afield, while also acting as advocates for crafts at risk of being lost.

Highgrove is home to The King’s Foundation craft programme, the Snowdon Summer School, the Snowdon School of Fine Furniture, the Métiers d’Arts Fellowship with Chanel, and short courses in fashion, textiles, and traditional building crafts.
