A lecture that considers the contested history of the county-based craft guild in England, and asks how the memberships of these vital, often unsung, organisations manage the issues of exhibition, selection and  selling.

Are they outmoded or essential, and how have their programmes developed. A special focus is placed on craft guilds in the South West of  England.

Simon Olding is Director of the Crafts Study Centre.

REGISTRATION : 1.45pm at the Crafts Study Centre

TICKETS : Free - advanced booking is required.
