Description

Since 1944, the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen (PGC) has advocated for and offered educational resources for makers of fine craft in Pennsylvania and surrounding states. 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 tradition of artisan-made items for 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.

Your support allows us to keep workshops affordable, providing access to hundreds of students each year. It allows us to offer retail opportunities for our members to exhibit their work for sale in our Guild Store. We can assist Emerging Artists and offer free community events such as demonstrations and exhibits. 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!
