"The UK has some amazingly talented artisans and within this is a wealth of Black artisans who are operating right across the UK in both traditional and more culturally focused heritage crafts areas. 

 

Their skills, achievements and paths into these areas are currently under acknowledged. 

 

The Black Artisans photography project and its workshops will open up all of the joy and opportunities to a wider, diverse community, which is something that I am more than happy to support."
