Relaunch for craftsmen’s guild
The Orkney Craftsmen’s Guild is to be relaunched as Orkney Arts and Crafts, at an exhibition and sale to be held throughout July, in the Kirkwall Town Hall.
Launching on Tuesday, July 5, at 11am, the event marks an important change for the group, who plan to develop their organisation this year, the first step being to develop a new brand.
With the strapline, “Skills from the Past, Products for the present,” Orkney Arts and Crafts hopes to bring in a new generation of artists and crafters in Orkney, and showcase the work that is carried out by people across the county.
A new website, www.orkneyartsandcrafts.com is also planned, and is soon to go live online.
