The Cathedrals’ Workshop Fellowship (CWF) is a group of nine Anglican cathedrals which have joined together to create a new generation of crafts men and women capable of caring for our cathedrals and heritage buildings in the 21st century. Cathedrals in the Fellowship are: Canterbury, Durham, Exeter, Gloucester, Lincoln, Salisbury, Winchester, Worcester and York Minster.

Founded in 2006, the CWF offers apprentice stonemasons, carpenter/joiners and electricians a recognised career path and a route to higher level qualifications through a two – year work-based study programme. Successful students achieve a Foundation degree (Arts) in Applied Historic Building Conservation and Repair, awarded by the University of Gloucestershire.

We are honoured that His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales has been our patron since 2005. The Fellowship has been generously supported and sponsored by the Ecclesiastical Insurance Groupthe Headley Trust and, currently, The Worshipful Company of Masons.  Find out more…
