A printed A4 poster advertising the Workshop Gallery in Chepstow from 13th June to 3rd August 1986 by the craftsmen and women of the MGW. It states that the exhibition is open everyday other than Mondays 2pm - 6pm and admission is free. In the centre of the poster is a drawing of a craftswoman. This document is in a black font on white paper. This document was found in a file labelled ‘Publicity for Exhibitions’.

The Makers’ Guild in Wales was formed in 1984 as a maker co-operative to bring together and promote the best of Welsh craft talent. The guild consists of craftsmen and women and is fully committed to its charitable aims, namely the promotion and preservation of applied art and craft skills, by presenting Welsh-based work of the highest quality for the public to view. Since its establishment, it has gained status in producing internationally recognised craft and art. Currently, the organisation has 79 Wales-based maker-members. Prior to settling at Craft in the Bay, which has been in several locations in Cardiff Bay, the guild was based at the Old Library craft centre from 1989 to 1995. The guild also spent some time at St David’s Hall. It is now based in the reconstructed ‘D’ Shed on the Flourish in Cardiff Bay.

In the beginning, The Makers ‘Guild in Wales was wholly run by volunteers; there were no paid staff positions until the mid to late 1990s. The Makers Guild still relies on the help of volunteers to work in the gallery space; they have played a vital role in the sustainability of the craft organisation.
