Aims of the Guild

To encourage and promote the craft of enamelling and the work of members.

To seek to exert a progressive influence on standards of workmanship and design in enamelling.

To foster good public relations and develop links with other crafts.

Everyone joins as a Member; no qualifications are required other than an interest in enamelling.

In the UK the Guild is divided into eight geographical regions, each having a representative on the Executive Committee. Details of regional meetings are posted in the journal and some have their own local newsletter. Members from any area are welcome at these regional meetings.

Ravenstein Exhibition Opens
 
John and Ellen Goldman accompanied by Sally Levell, of the British Club of The Hague, have just returned from the opening of the Guild Exhibition in Ravenstein. On arrival, they were metby Jan Klink, organiser of the exhibition, plus several of the museum's volunteers. Jan Klink spoke enthusiastically about the quality of the works on show, the majority of which are on the 4th floor where special exhibitions are displayed.

Panels line the walls and there is also a lot of work in the glass show cases within the exhibition space.
 
Naturally, everyone has their own favourites in a show of works made by so many different people. These include Jean Wilkinson and her Dragonfly Bowl which was looked at in amazement; Jeanne Crosse’s portrait of Martina, which was exhibited at Conference and some of Penny Gildea’s Penny Whistles.

In all around thirty members of the Guild have had work selected, all of which is for sale. The museum has lots to see and it is perfectly possible to spend hours there. Ravenstein itself is also very pretty, well worth a visit and not far from Arnhem.
 

The exhibition runs until 2nd October 2011. Full details are on the website: www.museumravenstein.nl
