Category Arts and Crafts

'Founded in 1955 with the aim of helping bring together the community of craft Weavers, Spinners and Dyers. Rather than set up another organisation for individual craft people we chose the path of becoming an Association of Guilds - an umbrella body to which regional or local Guilds are affiliated. The aim is to support those regional Guilds by operating at a larger scale with National Conferences, National Exhibitions, Competitions, publications and recognised qualifications certifying individuals' high level of achievement and competence in their chosen craft. We now have over 100 member Guilds representing over 5000 crafts-people.'

'If you are interested in becoming a Beekeeper or just interested in beekeeping generally, join a Local Branch of the Association ... DBKA is organised into 11 Branches ... Members may attend meetings of any Branch, but it is advisable (and courteous) to contact the Branch Secretary first.'

'Dedicated to the study and exchange of information and ideas on all matters concerning the county of Devon – in particular, the cultural identity of the county and its distinctiveness – through research, recording and publication ... The Association has six Branches that cover most of the county and offer a broad range of topics tailored to the diverse interests of their members. Each Branch has its own committee which arranges a broad-based, annual programme of Devon-related talks, excursions and social gatherings.'
