Somerset Guild of Craftsmen

The Somerset Guild of Craftsmen is one of the oldest craft guilds in the country and has been promoting excellence in design and craftsmanship for well over 80 years. The Guild has a county-wide membership of over 100 skilled, dedicated craftsmen and women who have undergone a stringent selection process.

At the Food Festival this year you will have the opportunity to see a selection of our work and to meet the craftsmen. The Somerset Guild of Craftsmen (SGC) shop at 23a Broad Street, Wells is open throughout the year, showcasing an ever increasing range of members’ work.
