New award for endangered crafts announced

By Mark Hayhurst 22 Nov 2017

The Heritage Crafts Association (HCA) has launched a new award of £1,000 with the support of the Marsh Christian Trust.

The HCA/Marsh Endangered Craft Award 2017/18 will be awarded to the proposal which in the opinion of the judges makes the best use of the funds to secure the survival of an Endangered or Critically Endangered Craft.

The winner will be announced at the HCA’s annual conference “Crafts for the Future” on March 24 at the Royal Society of Medicine, London.

For the purposes of the Award, eligible crafts are those which fall in the Endangered or Critically Endangered categories as defined in The HCA/Radcliffe Red List of Endangered Crafts.

For further details please see http://heritagecrafts.org.uk/redlist/categories-of-risk/

The list of Endangered or Critically Endangered Crafts may change in future years.

Deadline for nominations is at 2pm, January 15, 2018. All applicants will be notified by February 7, 2018, whether they have been selected to be finalists. All finalists will have free entry to, and are expected to attend, the HCA’s Annual Conference in London on March 24.

This Award is one of seven Heritage Crafts Association’s Heritage Crafts Awards to recognise those working in traditional skills, and to support those who wish to further their studies in heritage crafts or buy specific equipment and materials.

The deadline for the other six awards is November 30, 2017.
