Shaping the Trust
Ruskin Mill Trust was established in 1986 by Aonghus Gordon. At the time, the project was part of the Cotswold Chine School, offering continuing education post 16 to young adults from the school. The first course was the Living Earth Training Course which included opportunities to work alongside master craftsmen, in the biodynamic gardens and café.
Aonghus and his family were influenced by the works of Rudolf Steiner and others, including John Ruskin and William Morris. These individuals have also informed the work and methods of Ruskin Mill Trust.
