Marsh Heritage Crafts Trainer Award
This Award recognises trainers of heritage crafts who 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 influence the number and quality of skilled craftspeople in the UK.
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, a craft guild or membership organisation. Nominations for the Award can be made via the Heritage Crafts Association website. Entries are judged by a panel of experts in heritage crafts and representatives of the MCT.
