Marsh Heritage Crafts Maker of the Year Award

Maker of the Year
£1,000/£2,000 prizes
(Maxwell/Hanrahan FoundationMarsh Charitable TrustWilliam Grant Foundation and Silverlining Furniture)

This Heritage Crafts Award is to recognise a heritage craftsperson who has made an outstanding contribution to their specific craft within the previous 12 months (since 1 March 2023). This award will recognise a contribution that is far beyond the ordinary, either in pushing their craft to new levels, contributing to its promotion or continuation in an exceptional way. We expect this to be someone who demonstrates the highest level of craft skill and is held in high regard amongst their peers, but it need not be the most glamorous or high-end craft; we promote the simple, humble crafts too.

For the first time, one winner will be selected in each of the four UK nations to each receive a £1,000 prize. A UK winner will then be selected from the four, and their prize will be topped up to £2,000.

Anyone, including the maker themselves, can nominate for this award. Finalists will be expected to attend the high-profile Winners’ Reception in November 2024.

Opening date for applications: Monday 4 March 2024
Closing date for applications: Friday 24 May 2024, 5pm
