San Juan Makers Guild

Inspired By The Magnificent Beauty of the Land and the Sea

The San Juans are a precious resource, jewels in the Salish Sea, that have been revered for generations.

Today, Island Makers respond to this stunning natural environment through a variety of expressive mediums, inventions and manufactured goods. The works that emerge are fed by this remarkable, unforgettable setting - and a strong commitment to protecting the islands' natural resources for future generations.
