Can you spare just 10 minutes of your time to help provide current data for the HCA Red List of Endangered Crafts 2021? From swill baskets to hurdles, many coppice and green wood crafts are classified as endangered on the Red List and our skills remain at threat.

The Green Wood and Coppice Crafts Survey is being run in partnership with the Heritage Crafts Association (HCA), Small Woods and the National Coppice Federation.


If you are a maker of green wood or coppice crafts, professional or amateur, then we would like to hear from you.

Complete the Endangered Crafts Survey 2021 before - closing date of 31 January 2021.

The HCA Red List of Endangered Crafts ranks traditional crafts by the likelihood that they will survive to the next generation, based on intangible cultural heritage safeguarding principles. The 2019 Red List features 212 crafts that include everything from arrowsmithing to wheelwrighting. It found that: four crafts were extinct; 36 crafts are critically endangered; 71 crafts are endangered; and 102 crafts are deemed currently viable.
