About

The Haverford Guild of Craftsmen was chartered in August 2009 as the 16th local chapter of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen.

The Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen, headquartered in Lancaster, PA was founded in 1942 and is among the oldest professional craft guilds in the country. 12 talented artists, primarily from Haverford Township, comprised our charter membership. Now, five years later, our membership has climbed to over 100 fine crafts people.

Our membership spans many disciplines including jewelry, illustration, pottery, fiber, painting, art dolls, glass, woodworking,and photography.
