Since its création, La Guilde has been at the heart of its mission the desire to promote Fine Crafts, Inuit and First Nations art, in a Quebec, Canadian and international context.
This book talks about the tremendous pioneering work of this organization, created by two Montrealers in 1906, Alice Peck and May Phillips. It makes us discover how, for more than a century, La Guilde has been highlighting and promoting the dissemination of crafts through sales and exhibitions, and working for the conservation of ancestral techniques and the education of the population.
