The Cotswold Craftsmen are a well established group started in the late 1960’s whose membership is drawn from around the Cotswolds.
The group includes a rich cross section of craftsmen, designers and artists who value the traditions and skills of the past and wish to embrace contemporary techniques and ideas.
Handmade, beautifully designed original pieces are to be found at all our shows and members will usually be available to discuss their work and possible commissions.
Our aim is to encourage the making of individual items to a professional standard of design and finish.
We value the unique qualities that handmade individually crafted objects possess and recognise the lasting pleasure they bring.
Through striving to develop our skills as makers and designers, we offer something new to those who appreciate quality.
We can be seen at three main events a year, the Spring and Autumn shows at Malvern and our annual Christmas exhibition at Tetbury Market Hall. We also exhibit at a number of other shows throughout the year and at our gallery in Market Street, Nailsworth. Details of our shows are on the Events page and further information about the gallery can be found on oue Gallery page.
We welcome applications from quality professional makers and are keen to encourage young designers and makers to join the group. Details are available from our Membership Secretary or from the Application page.
