Members meet every other Thursday for lectures given by guest speakers on subjects related to the Guild’s interests: the promotion of craftsmanship and excellence in the applied arts. We also arrange exhibitions, discussions and demonstrations, to bring expertise and experience to other communities. As part of our charitable remit, we operate an Outreach programme of events, demonstrations and exhibitions promoting thinking with your hands. Creative Connections, is a new year-long programme at the Guild which aims to create a space for creative people who are beginning to establish themselves professionally. Programme participants can meet and connect with Guild members, build supportive networks with each other and develop their professional practice.
