About this event

Over three weeks each year the Prince’s Foundation runs a Summer School enabling participants to develop their knowledge of traditional architecture, design, building and repair techniques and how these can be applied in the 21st century.

The crafts and architecture Summer School teaches how traditional building repair techniques can be applied to meet the challenges of the 21st century. It’s an intensive three-week course, aimed at architects, developers, builders and craftspeople who are interested in building crafts and architecture, and how these factors respond to the local identity of historic contexts in a timeless and ecological way. 

The programme is based at The Prince’s Foundation’s headquarters in Shoreditch, London’s creative quarter, and at the Dumfries House Estate in Ayrshire, Scotland – one of Britain’s most beautiful stately homes, saved by the intervention of HRH The Prince of Wales in 2007.
