Mission Statement

Our aim is...

To support and promote heritage crafts as a fundamental part of our living heritage.

Description

The Heritage Crafts Association is the advocacy body for traditional heritage crafts. Working in partnership with Government and key agencies, it provides a focus for craftspeople, groups, societies and guilds, as well as individuals who care about the loss of traditional crafts skills, and works towards a healthy and sustainable framework for the future.

We will do this by:

  • Surveying - researching the status of heritage crafts, identifying those crafts in decline or in imminent danger of being lost, and addressing the issues to ensure their survival.
  • Advocating - communicating the vital importance of the heritage crafts to Government, key agencies and organisations.
  • Celebrating - raising awareness and raising the status of heritage craft skills with the wider public through a programme of public relations, communications and showcase events.
  • Safeguarding - working in partnership with key agencies in the education and learning sectors to identify and support new and innovative ways to ensure that the highest standard of heritage skills are passed from one generation to the next and where necessary recorded for posterity.
  • Supporting - to support heritage crafts through a range of means, including advice, networking, training and access to public and private funding.

We are a UK Registered Charity: 1133646.
