Craft Skills Awards

4 November 2013

30 October - Craft Skills Awards opens for entries

Run jointly by Creative & Cultural Skills and the National Skills Academy, The Craft Skills Awards celebrate excellence in teaching, maintaining and developing craft skills in the UK.

'Crafts' in this case range in practice from innovative work that is experimental, both in terms of its vision and manufacture, to traditional craft that supports and continues our cultural heritage and covers everything from textiles to ceramics, woodwork to metalwork.

Award winners could be an individual craftsperson, a trainee or master; a company or institution; or a teacher, tutor or workshop leader. The activity celebrated could include anything from academic courses and professional apprenticeship programmes to one-to-one advice, and masterclasses for craft professionals.

Nominations open on 30 October and the winner will be announced at a special ceremony in May.
