Professor Ewan Clayton on why heritage crafts are important

No blog post from me today but I wanted to share Ewan Clayton’s inspirational speech from the Heritage Crafts Association forum at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Many folk found it incredibly thought provoking and asked for a transcript, thankfully we had a recorder running and Ewan gave permission for it to be published. I am sure my blog readers will enjoy it.

And here is an overview of the forum with the results of all the delegates input in their own words. It really is a snapshot of where folk think the traditional crafts are at in the UK at the moment. Link
