This training bursary of up to £4,000 is 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 to support and celebrate craftspeople. Deadline: 13 December 2021, 5pm.
Join Dr Anna Ploszajski for an online workshop on writing about your craft, exclusively for Heritage Crafts members. Anna will give you some valuable tools to create compelling stories about your work and make you and your craft memorable, understandable and engaging.
