I have been a member of the Guild of Essex Craftsmen since 1996. It was established in 1984 and now provides me and many others like me with a range of support facilities. Key among these are the directory and an annual programme of events. For full and up to date information use the link below to go to the Guild web-site.
There are a great many associations and guilds offering services to craftworkers and many imply in their advertising that being a member is an assurance to the potential customer. Beware! Many of these organisations simply charge a fee to register a name and that is all. The Guild of Essex Craftsmen however vets prospective candidates and the events run by the Guild are only available to members and associated organisations maintaining the same high standards. Anybody wishing to join will find all the necessary information and contacts via the link below.
