The Guild of Transylvanian Craftsmen was founded in September 2005 with the participation of 26 founding members and was registered in 2007 as a professional non-governmental association. Until present, we have managed to register in our database over 700 craftsmen and artists who live, work and create in Transylvania (Hungarian, Romanian, Saxon, Rroma and Armenian peoples). - Transylvanian Craftsmen Catalogue.
Thus, alongside local and county associations, we have become the most significant specialist organization in the region.
Another project initiated in 2014 is entitled OPEN WORKSHOPS IN TRANSYLVANIA – tracing craftsmen, in which an informational material has been published about the workshops open for visitors in this region. By presenting crafts to tourists or even providing a course in a certain craft, we are hoping to introduce crafts in the circuit of rural tourism.
Our organization has elaborated the World Handicrafts Day movement , assigned by UNESCO for the 10th June, date of founding the World Crafts Council.
We organize the arts and crafts fairs during the two major annual Hungarian events: Hungarian Cultural Days of Cluj and Hungarian Days in Brasov.
We participate with different programs to celebrate the European Artistic Crafts Days, movement orchestrated by the National Institute of the Arts and Crafts (INMA) - France.
