Heritage Angel Awards 2022

Best Craftsmanship or Apprentice on a Heritage Rescue or Repair Project

About this Category

Best Craftsmanship or Apprentice on a Heritage Rescue or Repair Project:

This award will recognise volunteers or professionals, including individuals and groups, who have demonstrated the application of craft skills that have been key in repairing or rescuing a historic site. For example, it could be someone who has carved stone gargoyles for a church, repaired a historic window, or learned how to recreate bricks for a particular rescue.

The type of building or place does not matter as long as it is historic – that is, over 30 years old, located in Northern Ireland. Ideally we ask that the building or place appears on a recognised heritage register. The building or place does not have to be listed or scheduled; it could be part of a conservation area or a local building of significant interest. This award will also recognise archaeological sites, projects involving parks and gardens. This award may recognise buildings removed from the Heritage at Risk register, though prior inclusion on the register is not essential.

The craft can be from any discipline, for example, woodwork, masonry, metalwork or thatching. It is also an opportunity to award apprentices where work has made a significant contribution to a restoration. This award also looks at those individuals who have trained apprentices to carry on their work. The project must have been carried out in the last 10 years.
