Heritage Crafts Associations: Endangered Crafts Fund

Thanks to support from The Garfield Weston FoundationThe Dulverton Trust and theSussex Heritage Trust, the Heritage Crafts Association is again inviting craft practitioners and organisations in the UK to apply for small grants to fund projects that support and promote endangered crafts (the craft must be listed as endangered or critically endangeredon the current Red List of Endangered Crafts).

During the pandemic our craft skills are at more risk than ever before. This fund can now be used to address the specific challenges of COVID-19 to endangered skills and knowledge. There is a maximum of £2,000 available for each project and we will work with you to develop and support your work.

For example, this may include:

  • training for yourself to learn a new craft or technique;
  • training for an apprentice so that you can pass on skills and knowledge;
  • specialist equipment that will enable you to practice a craft or add a new product to your business;
  • materials and equipment to start running workshops; or
  • innovative approaches to supporting and promoting endangered crafts.

In addition to the funding you will also receive support from the Endangered Crafts Officerand the Heritage Crafts Association team to ensure that your project is a success. This will be unique to your project but it could include mentor support, business support or signposting to other opportunities.
