Become a Master Artisan


Honor. Recognition. Excellence. Craft-makers who pursue master status do so for the prestige and acknowledgment that comes with having their work achieve the mark of excellence that distinguishes them from the mainstream. Master Status members also receive extra benefits. Explore this crown jewel of the Pennsylvania Guild. Apply for the recognition your work deserves.


Find a great source of craft and craft-makers in your community! Meet our 12 chapters.
