We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded one of nine grants from the Heritage Crafts Association to help save endangered crafts from extinction.
Over the next few months Monica will be sharing her willow skeining and weaving knowledge with Melissa, who will be documenting the experience along the way.
Willow skeining is currently on the HCA’s red list of endangered craft, with only a few known practitioners currently making in the U.K.
A huge thank you to Heritage Crafts Association for giving us this opportunity to pass on our love of this endangered craft skill.
The Heritage Crafts Association is the advocacy body for traditional heritage crafts. Working in partnership with Government and key agencies, it provides a focus for craftspeople, groups, societies and guilds, as well as individuals who care about the loss of traditional crafts skills, and works towards a healthy and sustainable framework for the future.
