Maymester in Scotland

May 13-23, 2019

College of Charleston students will be immersed in a practical preservation skills building environment that has been developed by the Prince of Wales. Dumfries House is home for the Prince's Foundation (https://dumfries-house.org.uk/blog/page/188/the- princes-foundation-a-new-beginning). In Glasgow and Edinburgh, through interactive tours and drawing exercises, students will gain a knowledge of historic architecture and will come to understand historic preservation efforts in various contexts from the local to World Heritage. Practical exercises on the Dumfries House campus will give students first-hand experiences in traditional crafts such as black-smithing, thatching and stone masonry all with an eye towards utilizing these skills in applications on projects at home and abroad.
