THE LONG ISLAND CRAFT GUILD is committed to the development of the crafts movement, and seeks to promote the exchange of information and experiences that will benefit both artists and the community. Since 1959, the Guild has provided educational and informational services, regular meetings and workshops, and a sense of community among crafts people.

Membership in the Guild is open to all people interested in the creation and exhibition of fine craft. The LICG is an independent, non-profit educational organization.

The Guild offers members opportunities to participate in juried exhibitions where challenge themes are frequently posed to encourage creativity. Media groups in the LICG work in the following media: clay, fiber, glass (hot and cold), metal, mixed media, paper and wood. They conduct meetings and workshops and organize field trips. Members are welcome at any media group meeting or workshop. Bi-monthly General Membership Meetings provide social and educational opportunities for members and their guests, and feature lectures, visual presentations, demonstrations or panel discussions by fine craft artists.

The LICG e-newsletter is published a week before each General Meeting and includes member news, workshop announcements and opportunities for artists to exhibit in shows or at fine craft fairs all over the Metro area. Members are invited to share news of their exhibits, workshops, etc. via email sent to the entire membership. The LICG also holds an Annual Fine Craft Fair for members interested in selling their work.
