See works by Guild Members at the Wells and Mendip Museum.  “Interventions”, a display of 10 pieces inspired by the museum’s collections, will be on display and for sale during the Wells Art Contemporary exhibition (8-22 October).

The Somerset Guild is one of the oldest Craft Guilds in the country and has been promoting excellence in design and craftsmanship for well over 80 years; in 2018 the Guild will be celebrating 85 years of superb craftsmanship.  All our makers are skilled, dedicated craftsmen and women who have undergone a stringent selection process before becoming accepted as craft members.  To be a member of the Somerset Guild is the same mark of quality today as it was in 1933.

Based in the beautiful cathedral City of Wells, the Guild has a County wide membership of over 100 members. The Somerset Guild of Craftsmen (SGC) Shop is open throughout the year showcasing an ever increasing range of members’ work for you to admire and buy knowing that you have acquired a piece that is beautifully and individually created by a local maker.
