Worshipful Company of Joiners and Ceilers


Worshipful Company of Joiners and Ceilers

The Worshipful Company of Joiners and Ceilers is one of the Livery Companies in the City of London. The Guild of St James, the Company's predecessor, was formed in 1375. The organization of wood craftsmen, who were known at various times as Fusters, Carvers, and Joiners, received a Royal Charter of incorporation in 1571. The Company has traditionally been separate from the Carpenters' Company, for joiners attached wood using glue or other similar materials, while carpenters used nails. The Company, as is the case with most of the other Livery Companies, no longer maintains a close relationship with its original craft, though it supports wood-related educational institutions, as well as various charities.

The Company ranks forty-first in the order of precedence of the Livery Companies. Its motto is "Join Loyalty With Liberty".
