Arts & Crafts

The Company educated its craftsmen by apprenticeship from its earliest days and in 1872 the Company was represented at the Founding Committee that eventually established the City & Guilds of London Institute.

The Painters' Decorative and Fine Art Society comprising members of the Company carries forward the traditions which shaped the Company by holding annual exhibitions of its members' work and promoting the legacy of important decorative craftsmen in our Company’s history.
