Lecture: Professor Simon Olding - Within the Guilded Cage

A lecture that considers the contested history of   the
county-based craft guild in England, and asks how the memberships of these vital, often unsung, 
organisations manage the issues of exhibition, selection and  selling.
Are they outmoded or essential, and how have their programmes developed. A special focus is placed
on craft guilds in the South West of  England.
Simon Olding is Director of the Crafts Study  Centre.

REGISTRATION : 1.45pm at the Crafts Study Centre
TICKETS : Free - advanced booking is required.
