Art Workers Guild

The Art Workers Guild is an organization established in 1884 by a group of young architects associated with the ideas of William Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement. The guild promoted the 'unity of all the arts', denying the distinction between fine and applied art. It opposed the professionalization of architecture – which was promoted by the Royal Institute of British Architects at this time – in the belief that this would inhibit design. Its first master was the sculptor, George Blackall Simonds.
