THE Somerset Craft Guild - formerly the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen - will be closing the doors at its current premises in Broad Street, Wells on Saturday, December 23.

After eight years at this location, the Guild has taken the decision to look for new premises in order to showcase the work of its 70 members.

At present, members are still searching for the ideal place and would love to hear from any business owners or landlords who would be willing to help.

The Guild has a prestigious history and has been in existence for almost 90 years with members exhibiting high level of skills and craftsmanship in crafts ranging from woodwork, jewellery, ceramics and textiles.

The Guild gallery will continue to offer a wide range of high quality, handmade items for sale in the run up to Christmas and will be open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm.

You can expect a warm welcome from the team who will be on hand to offer advice if required.

You are welcome to visit and support local craftspeople.
