Becoming Involved

The Guild organises and participates in a number of exhibitions each year, with the Woodstock Christmas Exhibition the highlight of our events for members. You can become involved in Oxfordshire Craft Guild activities such as our exhibitions by becoming a Member or a Friend.

Members of the Guild are active makers and ambassadors for their chosen craft. To be admitted, they are invited to demonstrate the quality of their work, an understanding of design, commitment to their discipline and what they will offer the Guild. Members distinguish themselves from other makers by using the initials OCG after their name. Being accepted confers Associate status for a period of two years, followed by full Membership if approved by the Committee.
