Membership Terms & Conditions

I understand that, based on this completed application form and the accompanying images of my work, the selection committee of the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen may/or may not invite me to a selection interview when I may bring examples of the work.

I would intend to exhibit and sell through the Guild along with a portfolio of further photographs, drawings and other material in support of my application.
