Artists and Craftsmen in the Modern Era
Our mission is to inspire positive collaboration amongst craftsmen, the community, and the Roycroft Campus.
The Arts & Craftsmen Guild was formed in May of 2015 to promote and preserve the home of the American Arts & Crafts Movement and to foster the fellowship and tranquility among artists of all mediums along with their supporters. Membership networking and educational meetings are held every month on the historic Roycroft Campus on the second Thursday of the month.

"All success consists in this: You are doing something for somebody - benefiting humanity - and the feeling of success comes from the consciousness of this."
The Arts and Craftsmen Guild keeps one foot firmly planted in the history of the Roycroft Campus, and the other moving forward to bring quality, hand made arts and crafts into today's world. It is a coming together of artists and their supporters, and a place where mentoring and education bring these values to a new generation of artists. It is our sincere desire to foster the growth of art in our community. To find out more about the American Arts and Crafts Movement, click here.
