What is a "Heritage Craft"?
For the purposes of this research, we are using the definition developed by the UK-based Heritage Crafts Association, which defines a heritage craft as "a practice which employs manual dexterity and skill and an understanding of traditional materials, design and techniques, and which has been practised for two or more successive generations."
For this survey, we are asking crafters, makers, and builders to give us feedback on the current state of the heritage craft form they are most familiar with in Newfoundland and Labrador. This information will be used to compile a list of those crafts most at threat in the province.
If you would rather take this survey by phone, call:
