From boats to basketwork - forging a new future for ancient crafts
31 MAR 2020
From keeping the crafts of sail and coracle making afloat to replacing century-old tools that are the last set in existence, Allchurches Trust funding is helping ensure that endangered crafts live on in the UK.
In January 2020, Allchurches announced grant funding of £12,000 to The Heritage Crafts Association (HCA) to help ensure the survival of threatened ancient crafts.
In 2019, the HCA published the second edition of its ‘HCA Red List of Endangered Crafts’, highlighting traditional skills which are under threat and under-resourced and then introducing a fund to increase the likelihood of these skills being passed on to future generations.
