Hawkwood College

The Trust has established a working relationship with Hawkwood College, a beautiful educational, arts and residential centre in Gloucestershire. Most of the Mount Pleasant paintings, fine furniture and important books are now housed at Hawkwood, as is the office.

Hawkwood College, a building dated back to 1840, is located in the countryside, but is still only a few minutes away from Stroud Station. The House is set within 42 acres of beautiful grounds, and the centre is well known for its excellent food and welcoming atmosphere. Studio space, a piano, meeting rooms and other support can often be offered, and applicants to the Trust may be interested in contacting Hawkwood also about these facilities.

As well as supporting artist residencies, Hawkwood runs educational programmes, talks and festivals.
