Craftspeople invited to apply for awards and bursaries recognising traditional skills
The Heritage Crafts Association is calling for applications for a suite of awards and bursaries recognising people working in traditional skills.
Craftspeople can be nominated for Heritage Crafts Maker of the Year, Marsh Trainer of the Year, and Marsh Volunteer of the Year. Nominations can also be made for the Marsh Heritage Crafts ‘Made in Britain’ Award. Each award is worth £1,000.
A bursary offered with the support of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS) and worth up to £5,000 is also available for study in a wide range of heritage crafts such as weaving, basket making, hand engraving, embroidery, stone and wood carving and ironwork.
The deadline for applications is 30th November 2016.
The awards will be presented at the Heritage Crafts Association’s Annual Conference in May 2017.
Further information and application forms are available at: http://awards.heritagecrafts.org.uk/
The awards and bursaries have been made possible through the generous support of the Heritage Crafts Association’s funding partners, the Marsh Christian Trust and the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS).
