About CC

Cotswold Craftsmen.

The Cotswold Craftsmen is a non profit making group of professional craftsmen and women who live in and around the Cotswolds, promoting high quality genuine craftsmanship.

Members are expected to actively participate in the running of the Group and are required to exhibit at a minimum number of Cotswold Craftsmen events a year. All work by must be original and hand made by that member.

Demonstration is a feature of the Group and is included wherever the venue permits.

The Exhibition Programme includes the Spring Garden Show, Three Counties Show and Autumn Show at Malvern; the Three Choirs festival; a Christmas Show plus additional exhibitions and shows at various locations throughout the Cotswold area. The Group is constantly looking to stage additional exhibitions and the annual programme may change according to the venues available.

Successful applicants will be granted 12 months provisional membership of the group. The annual subscription fee of £65 will then be due (pro rata rates apply), along with a one-off registration fee of £15 and you will be able to book into any group shows and gallery slots. You will be provided with the Groups chosen stand covering which you will be expected to use at all events in order to promote a professional image.

Full membership will be considered by the Committe after 12 months taking into consideration the comments and opinions of all full group members

Members of the Cotswold Craftsmen gain prestige from being part of a group with high standards – though we aim to combine this with a down-to-earth approach to our craft work.  We look forward to meeting you at one of our events.
