This training bursary is specifically targeted at Black and ethnically diverse makers, as this is an under-represented group in heritage crafts. It is sponsored by DCA Consulting and is one of a suite of awards and bursaries offered by Heritage Crafts to support and celebrate craftspeople.
Apply for up to £4,000 to start training in a heritage craft or to further develop your skills.
“It is still the case that the UK craft sector does not accurately reflect the diversity of the UK as a whole and, for this reason, we are taking positive action to target this grant at Black and ethnically diverse groups who are currently under-represented in the craft sector.
We believe that the value of our craft heritage comes from the diversity of skills and traditions across all of our communities, wherever they originated and whenever they were brought here. We want everyone to feel included in Heritage Crafts and our work, no matter how long they have called this country home or what their background may be.
You could be just starting out on your journey in craft or at the point where you want to turn a hobby into a career, or you could already be a maker who is looking to further develop your heritage craft skills.”
