Who we are

The membership comprises over 400 active craftspeople, writers, historians and scientists. More than 60 crafts are represented, from glass engraving and wallpaper design to film-making and surgery. 

Work by past and present Guild members can be seen all over Britain, in houses, churches and everyday objects. The Guild’s values include serving clients’ needs in commissioned work rather than insisting on artistic autonomy, and collaboration between artists and designers in different fields, especially in the embellishment of buildings.
