Overview:Stamford Artisans Guild is a not for profit company managed by local artists, designers and makers from Stamford, Lincolnshire & surrounding areas on a voluntary basis. The Guild started as an informal group in 2009 with the aim to create a local crafts community and provide a forum for creative folks in the area to meet regularly. The Guild organised its first Hand-made Christmas Market in December 2009 at the Stamford Arts Centre.
The Stamford Artisans Guild encourages members, fair visitors and supporters alike to “LOVE WHAT'S LOCAL!” Buy local, Buy handmade and help support our local hand-made community and small businesses.
Stamford Artisans Guild is hosting several hand-made craft fairs in Stamford, Oakham, Peterborough and Wansford in 2011 and also supporting monthly craft events at Fineshade Woods.
From being an informal membership club the Guild has now taken a step up and has been incorporated as a Limited By Guarantee Company, Registered in England & Wales. Stamford Artisans Guild Limited continues to be a not-for-profit company run by its members through an elected management committee to support our Local Craft Community. We encourage our members to get involved, put forth their ideas and be part of this vibrant and fun group!
