The Heritage Crafts Association


The Heritage Crafts Association (HCA) is the only national organisation that safeguards and promotes traditional craft skills in the UK.

The HCA brought the sector together for the first time, creating a focus for heritage crafts and know more about craft skills than anyone else. We have an incredible range of craft skills in the UK and some of the best craftspeople in the world – they are part of our shared heritage. But many of these skills are in the hands of an ageing population and could be extinct within the next five years.
