Autumn | 2018

Jessica Mantoan gained a BSc in Conservation Science from the University of Milan before moving to London, drawn to the city by her fascination with British monuments and the postgraduate study opportunities at the City & Guilds of London Art School.

A QEST Howdens Scholarship will contribute to the fees for Jessica’s Conservation MA, which will provide training in the conservation of wood, stone and decorative surfaces. The course also covers ethics, conservation technology, chemistry and the history of pigments, and touches on the crafts of wood and stone carving, gilding and joinery.

“I hope to practice the conservation of public art, especially sculpture and stone, at a prestigious London museum; the advanced techniques and material experience I gain on this course will be invaluable.”
