Location & Contact Information


The Colorado Arts & Crafts Society’s Annual
Gathering of the Guilds to be held in Downtown Golden!
April 14, 2019 10am-4pm

The Colorado Arts & Crafts Society (CACS) is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to the preservation and study of the Arts and Crafts Movement (1880-1920) in Colorado and nationwide. CACS is committed to the revival of this movement and the artisans working today that are inspired by the past. Members promote this rich cultural heritage through presentations and workshops, the annual Winter Symposium, field trips and walking tours. The group’s most celebrated event each year, however, is the Gathering of the Guilds Show & Sale, featuring the best in local craftsmanship.

CACS has been based in Golden, CO since 1997 and hosts many of its events at the Boettcher Mansion, a 1917 Arts & Crafts estate listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This year the Gathering of the Guilds will be held closer to town, at the American Mountaineering Center located at 710 10th Street in downtown Golden, CO 80439. The Show & Sale will be held on April 14, 2019 from 10am to 4pm. General Admission is $5.

This popular event is the only place where local guilds and artisans inspired by the Arts & Crafts Movement can come together to celebrate their craft. Vendors will include a wonderful collection of professional artists, metalsmiths, potters, woodworkers and weavers selling their handcrafted items in the following categories: Art, Antiques, Book Binding, Calligraphy, Ceramics, Distilling, Fiber, Furniture, Glass, Jewelry, Paper, and Textiles. There will be demonstrations and presentations throughout the day. More information can be found at
