The Wessex Guild of Craftsmen
The Guild exists to support and promote excellent standards of workmanship and design among craftsmen and women from Hampshire and adjoining counties.
Members sell their unique, handmade art and design through regular craft exhibitions and events across the region, including the popular Hampshire Open Studios.
The Guild is a group of friendly, likeminded, creative individuals who are keen to share their knowledge with one another and the general public, to ensure the highest quality is maintained and appreciated across a wide range of crafts.
