The Shropshire Guild of Contemporary Craft encourages the finest design ability coupled with the highest quality of workmanship within its membership, whilst aiming to promote a greater comprehension and appreciation of design-led craftwork within Shropshire.
The aim of the Guild is to promote quality of craftsmanship and contemporary creativity through exhibitions, including 'Showing Off' in Ludlow (April and October) and the Shropshire Guild's annual flagship exhibition 'Gorgeous', held in November.
These remarkable selling exhibitions of inspirational craftwork showcase a wide selection of quality, contemporary work by around thirty-five Guild members and guests including ceramics, furniture, glass, jewellery, textiles and sculpture.
Exhibitors for each event are carefully selected each year to ensure there is a diverse range of products with both affordable and higher priced items across a range of disciplines; every item on display reflects an exceptionally high level of craftsmanship and design.
The Guild also offers its members support and opportunities for their professional development.
A voluntary board of members manage the group to ensure that it takes its direction from designer makers with a genuine interest in promoting Shropshire crafts.
