Marsh Heritage Crafts Trainer Award

HCA/Marsh Trainer of the Year
£1,000 (Marsh Christian Trust)

One of the Heritage Crafts Association’s key aims is to ensure that traditional crafts skills of the highest standard are passed from one generation to the next. The enthusiasm, knowledge and experience of key individuals can really influence the number and quality of skilled craftspeople in the UK. Broadly classified as ‘trainer’, the award winner could be anything from a teacher, tutor, workshop leader, master or simply a craftsperson who offers one-to-one advice. The trainer might give anything from taster sessions for beginners to masterclasses for professionals.

Trainers may nominate themselves, or be nominated by a trainee or a craft guild or membership organisation. Shortlisted applicants will be expected to attend the Awards Ceremony at the Houses of Parliament in Autumn 2021 (COVID permitting)

Opening date for applications: Monday 1 March 2021
Closing date for applications: Friday 30 April 2021, 5pm
