The National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS)

New £5000 NADFAS Award for Heritage Crafts
Supporting the next generation of skilled crafts people in the UK

The National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS) is delighted to be working in partnership with The Heritage Craft Association (HCA). A grant of £5,000 has been awarded to support an Apprentice or Trainee in the heritage crafts sector.

Over the years NADFAS has supported many crafts and skilled disciplines that are at risk of dying out. The HCA NADFAS Grant 2012 is a positive step to ensure that these skills are passed on to future generations. The successful applicant will be announced in July 2012.

David Bell Chief Executive:
“This exciting new link with the HCA greatly enhances our ability to support craftspeople working in the Heritage sector.”
