We are delighted to announce that the HCA/ The Arts Society Bursary has been awarded to Sheffield-based clogmaker and leatherworker, Simon Brock. 

The award was presented at the HCA Conference on 9th March.

The HCA / The Arts Society Bursary supports traditional crafts that contribute to our living heritage. Particular emphasis is placed on helping those crafts that could be in danger of dying out.

With the bursary, Simon will be able to extend his practice as a clogmaker and learn the craft of carving soles by hand. This craft is on the HCA's Red List for critically endangered crafts.
