Dozens of traditional British crafts that have been practised for centuries are in serious danger of vanishing forever, a new study says. Craftspeople, from flute makers to glass sign painters, and wagon builders to bell founders, are on the brink of extinction as fewer people are learning their skills. The warning comes as industry supporters release a new 'Red List of Endangered Crafts' to highlight the ancient trades most at risk of disappearing. Researchers have assessed 212 UK crafts, which were divided into four categories of 'extinct', 'critically endangered', 'endangered' and 'currently viable'. Mould and deckle making - used to shape paper - has been classed as a newly extinct craft after the last practitioner died in 2017.
