On Saturday 2nd October 2021 the Guild held an online events day dedicated to the memory of Phil Barnes who died in May 2019.
Phil was a master engraver, a wonderful enameller, designer and craftsman; he won many awards including the Jacques Cartier Memorial Award. Phil was a motivational teacher, a loyal friend and possessed a great sense of humour. He was a much loved and cherished member of the Guild. Phil was an inspiration to us all and is one of our greatest treasures.
