ART WORKERS’ GUILD

The majority of our lectures and study days take place in the beautiful Georgian confines of the Art Workers’ Guild’s  wonderful townhouse on Queen Square, Bloomsbury.

The Artworkers Guild is a unique organisation of distinguished craftspeople, artists and designers.  Founded in 1884, to promote the highest standards of excellence in all of the applied arts and to bring together on an equal footing practitioners in many different fields, it continues to fill a role which is as relevant in the 21st century as it was then.

In 1912 the Guild acquired the freehold of a Grade II* Georgian house in Bloomsbury, and in 1914 built a handsome meeting hall at its rear to seat 100 people.   This was refurbished in 2011 at the Guild’s expense, and is fully equipped with up-to-date facilities for meetings and talks.
