In Conversation With Daniel Carpenter, Executive Director Of Heritage Craft
Meg Pirie is in conversation with UK charity Heritage Craft’s Executive Director, Daniel Carpenter for Fashion Roundtable's 'Front Row to Front Bench' Podcast.
They discuss the Heritage Crafts ‘Red List of Endangered Crafts’, the importance of a STEAM curriculum and practical subjects being taught in schools and what it would take for the UK government to ratify the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
As well as Heritage Craft’s latest campaign in partnership with Folksy, ‘BUY LESS, BUY BETTER, BUY HANDMADE’ and their hope of what this may achieve in supporting makers across the UK. Particularly in time for Christmas.
An interesting conversation about heritage, crafts and the need for government support.
