A WORD FORM OUR SUPPORTERS

THE SOUTH SQUARE TRUST

The South Square Trust has been supporting students on the Conservation of Metalwork programme at West Dean College for over 20 years and West Dean is very grateful for such generosity. The South Square Trust Scholars have gone on to work in a wide variety of roles within the industry, including conserving coins and medals at the Imperial War Museum, working on a telescope project at the National Maritime Museum,
and even conserving items from Ernest Shackleton’s hut in the Antarctic.

"THE TRUSTEES, THE SOUTH SQUARE TRUST:
We have been delighted to have such a long-term relationship with West Dean.
We share the passion for conservation shown by the College, its tutors and the students."

BADA

The British Antique Dealers’ Association (BADA) is the longest-standing supporter of West Dean College. BADA contributed to the creation of several of the full time diploma programmes at West Dean and has since continued to work closely with tutors and students at the College.
As part of this support BADA funds the BADA Joan Eyles Scholarship at West Dean. The Scholarship provides a full year’s tuition fees for a student who is keen to join the vibrant community of professionals providing conservation and restoration services in the UK. Former students of West Dean are employed in respected institutions such as The British Museum and the Bodleian Library, conserving and caring for important historical collections. Many others have gone on to set up their own conservation practice, or work in existing restoration workshops.


"MARK DODGSON, SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE
BRITISH ANTIQUE DEALERS’ ASSOCIATION:
We look forward to welcoming the next BADA Scholar and to continuing our close association with West Dean. If you are interested in learning the skills necessary to conserve antique ceramics, furniture or metals, and have outstanding potential, please apply directly to the College. We look forward to meeting you and together, preserving our heritage for the enjoyment of future generations."
