I had heard stories about Attingham from colleagues in the art world, from various professors during graduate school, and while working in museum education, but nothing could prepare me for the actual experience and impact of the program.
The Attingham Summer School was one of the most amazing experiences of my life and career; quite different from what I expected, and more wonderful than I imagined.
…Essential to the course’s success was the astonishing generosity of time and knowledge shown by the staff of the Royal Collection Trust. I was deeply impressed by their commitment to showing us the breadth of the royal collection, …and to sharing their knowledge with the participants.
The program was a holistic immersion into material culture that I will remember for the rest of my life.
I am very grateful for the unique opportunity to spend an extended period studying thousands of objects in royal residences and establishments that are not normally accessible to the public.
