Last year alone in the UK, four heritage crafts were declared extinct and a further 56 critically endangered. The Prince's Master Crafters: The Next Generation will bring some of these crafts back to life, reinvigorating them with a new generation of talent. Drawn from across the country, the six amateur craftspeople will explore the history and importance of six key disciplines. They're joined by some of the country's leading experts who each week set them a new task within their crafts.
