Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen: 90 Years Celebration


Dates: 17th June to 16th July 2023

Venue: Museum in the Park



Crafts in Gloucestershire have a long history based on traditional handwork and the inspiration of designer-makers from the Arts and Crafts movement: Gimson and the Barnsleys who settled in Sapperton in 1894, the radical Whiteway Colony founded in 1898, and C. R. Ashbee whose Guild of Handicraft moved from London’s East End to Chipping Campden in 1902.

This exhibition will celebrate the people, their stories and work from when the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen was set up in 1933 through the 90 years to 2023. Rarely seen examples of textiles, metalwork, jewellery, glass, ceramics, baskets, leather and furniture by past Guild members will be displayed alongside contemporary work by current members, available for sale.

Each Saturday of the show you can 'Meet the Makers', when groups of crafts people will demonstrate and talk about their work.

On Sundays there will be workshops by

Valerie Michael - Leatherworking
Susan Early - Basketmaking
Bridget Williams - Ceramics
Corrine Hockley - Mixed Media
Harriet St Leger - Jewellery

Craft guilds have existed since medieval times as a way of regulating quality and passing on skills between generations. Designing and making can be a lonely process so being part of a group provides fellowship and opportunities to exchange ideas, ask for advice and develop projects with like-minded people. Craft guilds can enable makers to make a living and sell their work directly to those who appreciate fine craftsmanship and design.
