Funding & Grants

At Hereford Make we've built up a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise when it comes to helping you find the best route to secure funding for your creative talent.

Given the practical nature of blacksmith and the creative arts, you may find yourself spending a lot on expensive materials and equipment for your course – including workspace rental, forge time, raw materials, paintbrushes, canvases, photo consumables, fabrics and even tickets to relevant exhibitions, shows or performances.

So whether your looking for help on a personal basis or as part of a community group or collaborative partnership, we'll guide you through the process of finding the right source of funding, preparing your application and filling in the forms.

To get started, we'll need a few basic details, so let us know what your looking for using the form below and we'll get back to you as soon as possible to arrange an initial chat and together we'll get you started.
