Surrey Guild of Craftsmen members are selected professional craftsmen and designer makers of contemporary and traditional applied arts. Their work is distinguished by fine craftsmanship and innovative design.
The Guild aims to support its members and to raise public awareness of the quality and diversity of the work created by local designer makers. This is done through a programme of exhibitions and craft events at venues around the county and beyond, where members display and sell their work.
Surrey Guild of Craftsmen members also run the Surrey Guild Craft Gallery in Milford, Surrey.
The Gallery is run on a co-operative basis, and a wide variety of individual members’ work can be seen and purchased there. The Gallery is also an exhibition venue, a place where makers and their customers can meet to discuss commissions, and the Guild’s permanent home.
Membership of the Guild offers opportunities for members to exchange ideas, partner each other in independent exhibitions and open studios, and offer feedback, encouragement and critical appraisal. New members are always welcome, and application procedures can be found by visiting join the Guild on this web site.
The Guild’s aims and objectives are:
- To increase their knowledge in the field and promote exchange of ideas and experiences through workshops, talks and slide shows.
- To promote, maintain, improve and advance the education and appreciation of craft in all its aspects via publicity and all activities above mentioned.
- To help members achieve a more critical awareness of their own skills.
- To provide a showcase to promote their work through regular exhibitions and the newsletter.
