The Artisans’ Guild was formed in 1988 to promote community interest and improve skills in the traditional arts, to provide a venue for people in the Caboolture district to display and sell their arts and crafts and to provide a meeting place for people with similar interests. We work closely with all local art and craft groups and with local charities to assist in their activities. The guild also raises funds and makes donations to various charitable organizations.
The badge was designed to show an artist’s easel formed by the letter ‘A’ for artisan in blue, with the ‘G’ for guild within it in gold, the two colours of the Artisans’ Guild. Our motto, ‘Discordia Frangimur’ is Latin for Discord Weakens and was chosen to encourage our members to work in unison even though they may have diverse interests.
Our patron is Councillor Mark Booth. Councillor Booth is the Division 2 representative on Moreton Bay Regional Council. Our previous patron was Mayor Greg Flannery and previously Mr Greg Chippendale.

Meetings of the Artisans’ Guild are held at the Old Bay Road Gallery every month on the second Wednesday.
