Over 50 years ago, a small group of artisans came together through their joy and enthusiasm for the creation of handmade crafts. As interest and membership grew, they formed the Torrance Craftsmen’s Guild as an organization chartered by the City of Torrance in California.
Many Guild members sell their handcrafted items to the public at two annual events in the Fall and Spring.
The original purpose of the Guild was, and still is today, to promote the interest of arts and crafts in the local community. It has expanded to reward individuals for their endeavors in the world of arts and crafts by providing scholarships to high school senior students within the Torrance Unified School District. These two events raise the funds needed to support the scholarships.
