Since it was founded in 1990, QEST has awarded over £5.2million to 675 individuals working in over 130 different crafts. We define craft broadly and welcome applications from all areas including rural skills, contemporary craft, conservation, luthiery and much more. A directory of all our alumni can be seen on our website, along with more details on how to apply - www.qest.org.uk. We have two application rounds each year - in January and July.
