We’ve been working hard in the background with Oliver at It’seeze to make the Guild website more current and user friendly in a modern world. As well as being a platform for information about the Guild and what we do for the general public, it will enable our makers to book events, renew their membership and even submit their vote for the AGM online. 
The new website will do more to showcase makers work with links to their own social media and online platforms enabling members of the public and other event organisers to find genuine handmade arts and crafts with makers direct contact details. 
Just like all other businesses and organisations, the Guild has been impacted by the pandemic since 2020. A significant impact is the cost of venue hire which has affected which events we can now host. Most previous event venues needed to catch up on weddings which were postponed during 2020/21 and we now find the increases in hire costs have made them unaffordable for us. This means we’ve had to adjust how we promote our makers work and the new website is now even more important in showcasing and supporting our makers. We are however continuing to look at new venues and ideas and working with other event organisers for our makers to be able to participate in their events. 
The new website is still a work in progress and we will continue to add updated information as we go. If you are interested in joining the Guild, please look at the Join the Guild page or feel free to contact us for any other queries you may have. Keep an eye on our blog page as we’ll be featuring different artists on this page over the coming months.
