We are very pleased to introduce Sally Dodson our new Heritage Crafts Association administrator.
The post is funded for 2 years by a generous grant from the Headley Trust and we had 254 applicants for the position.
Sally did a foundation year at Central St Martins followed by a BA in Silversmithing and Jewellery at London Guildhall. 7 years working at the Crafts Council included managing the National Register of Makers database and for the last 3 years she has worked for the Goldsmiths Company as Promotion Administrator including coordination of their annual Goldsmiths fair.
In Sally's application she said "I am looking for a new challenge within the craft sector. I am very excited by the possibility of working for such a new, fledgling organisation where I hope I could really put my skills, experience and energy to use to make a difference."
When not working Sally is an active member of the Southside Fencing club and recently raised £5,000 for MacMillan Cancer Support by completing the Kilimanjaro Hiking Challenge.
We are thrilled to have Sally joining our team of voluntary trustees, it is indeed a very exciting time and we feel together we really are going to make a very big difference in the years to come.
