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. Today two groups comprising members of the Company carry forward the traditions which shaped the Company i.e. the Painters’ Fine Art Society which holds annual exhibitions of its members work and the Painters’ Decorative Crafts Group which promotes the legacy of important decorative craftsmen in our Company’s history.
