Network Heritage Crafts Association Association

The Heritage Crafts Association is the advocacy body for traditional heritage crafts in the UK. Working in partnership with the government and key agencies, it provides a focus for artisans, groups, societies and guilds, as well as individuals who care about the loss of traditional craftsmanship skills, and works towards a healthy and sustainable framework for the future. Its mission is to support and promote heritage crafts as a fundamental part of our living heritage. In May 2017, the HCA published the first edition of 'The HCA Red List of Endangered Crafts' to assess the vitality of traditional heritage crafts in the UK and identify those most at risk of disappearing. The Association hopes this research will mark the start of long-term monitoring of heritage craft viability and serve as a call to action to avoid cultural losses.
