Young Craftsman of the Year competition
This event embraces two of the South of England Agricultural Society’s objectives, namely to promote crafts and skills and to encourage young people to extend themselves and produce work of the highest standard. It is hoped that the Awards will provide financial assistance and publicity to encourage the successful candidates to pursue and broaden their skills.
There are five classes:
Wood – predominantly wood, but may incorporate metal, glass or leather
Metal – including silver, decorative iron work and functional metal fabrication
Ceramics – an article made from clay or stoneware that has been fired
Textiles – a finished article in any fabric including leather
Design and Technology – an article designed to fulfil a need and made from a combination of materials, or a single material
Craftsman – someone who practices a craft with great skill, technique, expertise, mastery and artistry.
