Traditional Artisans:

Our lists of artisans are based on their respective craft categories. These craft categories are  based primarily on the materials used and in some cases the technique employed by the artisans. Extra categories may be added should the need for a more specific craft classification arises.

The list is continuously being expanded and is composed of artisans whom MANLILIKHA members have interviewed and whose craft practice have been the subject of our researches. It is our intention to expand this list and create a database of Filipino traditional artisans.

Contemporary Artisans:

The list  is composed of artists, crafts workers, architects and the likes, who create crafts based works that help enrich Philippine crafts practice, and who take kindly to being referred to as 'artisans' and their works 'crafts'.
