The Queen Elizabeth Trust, or QEST, is an organisation dedicated to the promotion of British craftsmanship through the funding of scholarships and educational endeavours to include apprenticeships, trade schools, and traditional university classwork. The work of QEST is instrumental in keeping alive age old arts and crafts such as masonry, glassblowing, shoemaking, pottery, decorative painting, weaving, among others.
Artisans and artist may apply for scholarships to fund their apprenticeships and other traditional school based coursework. QEST also works in partnership with The Princess Foundation’s Building Arts Programme to promote a holistic approach to the building trades and related arts. The Princess Foundation was set up in 2018 as a merger of The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community, The Prince’s Regeneration Trust, The Great Steward of Scotland’s Dumfries House Trust and The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts.Home
