The Guild Chest


The Guild Chest is a contingency fund to help art workers deal with the unexpected. Stuff happens! If you are in the throes of an unpredictable moment, talk to us in complete confidence.

We can help with anything that affects your career as a craftsman – a project that has fallen through, ill health or bereavement, equipment you can’t afford to upgrade, or even a steep heating bill. We can’t help fund exhibitions, but try one of us and we’ll see what can be done.
