Support the Guild

At the Guild, we believe that fine craft, both traditional and contemporary, enriches the lives of individuals and the community as a whole. We strive to preserve the practice of making and pass it on to future generations through education and community engagement. We are also committed to supporting and promoting excellence in working craftsmen through exhibitions, retail opportunities, professional development and continuing education.

Since 1944, the Pennsylvania Guild  has served as one of the best educational resources for makers of fine craft in Pennsylvania and surrounding states. Now the 7th largest craft organization in the nation, the Guild reaches more than 100,000 people annually. Your support allows us to keep workshops affordable, providing access to hundreds of students each year.  It allows us to offer free community events such as demonstrations, lectures and MakersFest.  Your support also works to ensure that the Guild can continue to serve as a cultural leader in the arts, furthering our mission nationally as well as locally. Please consider supporting the arts today!
