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. The person nominated can be any age. All finalists will be invited to the HCA’s Awards Ceremony at the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday 17 November 2020, 4pm to 6pm, and are expected to attend.

Opening date for applications: Saturday 1 February 2020
Closing date for applications: Friday 1 May 2020, 5pm
