Inspiring works from rural farms, forests, & charming villages on the Salish Sea
The Guild’s mission it to foster and promote locally made products, increase public engagement in the Island's Makers Movement, and undertake strategic community-based economic strengthening.
A core value of the Guild is celebrating and sharing the unique island landscapes, cultural expressions, artistic gifts, agriculture, ingenuity and natural resources of San Juan County, Washington.
There is a resourcefulness, the willingness to slow down and 'do it right', a calling to listen to nature, and a curiosity about our human potential that weaves threads through the Maker Community in the San Juans. The choice to live more remotely, to embrace a simpler lifestyle, to praise beauty and promote sustainable solution are hallmarks of the Island Lifestlye.
