Master Craftsman Criteria

The Standards Committee issues invitations to artists for Master Craftsman status.

A Master Craftsman is someone who has demonstrated superior talent, artistic skill and knowledge in their chosen craft.

Historically, an artist wishing to become a master in a guild must pass through the apprentice stage and then practice their craft for 3 to 5 years as a journeyman. The journeyman was then required to produce a masterpiece before they were to be considered masters in their guild.

The Louisiana Crafts Guild wishes to acknowledge the best of Louisiana craftspeople practicing their craft today.
