Robert Jekyll Award

Past Executive Director, Anne Manuel, co-recipient of the Canadian Crafts Federation annual Robert Jekyll Award

On October 3rd, 2018, the Canadian Crafts Federation (CCF/FCMA) announced that there would be two recipients of their annual Robert Jekyll Award this year. The Craft Council of Newfoundland & Labrador is proud to say that Anne Manuel, retired Executive Director of 33 years, was one of the award winners! Also receiving this award is Tom McFall, retired Executive Director for the Alberta Craft Council.

The Robert Jekyll Award for Leadership in Craft is awarded to those who have worked hard to make real change and a lasting impact on the growth of Canadian contemporary craft.  This award celebrates distinguished contributors to the sector, and is one of the highest markers of exceptional commitment to the development of the craft community in Canada.

Anne’s contribution over the years has been vast, varied and instrumental in creating one of the strongest craft communities and industries in Canada. The range of her involvement spanned from writing a simple letter to a rural craftsperson with some information relevant to their work, to taking an active role with the Canadian Craft Federation, including numerous international craft events.

Anne has left an indelible mark on the history of craft in our province, and has grown our organization to be a respected member of the international craft community. We are so incredibly proud that she is a recipient of the Robert Jekyll Award this year, and that there will be a contingent of Newfoundland & Labrador craft industry representatives in Lunenburg, NS, for the awards ceremony in October.
