"The Handicraft Guild of Minneapolis" Any Minnesotan familiar with the Arts & Crafts movement should be aware of the Handicraft Guild of Minneapolis. The teaching and training group, which existed from about 1905 to 1918, was headquartered in a building still standing in downtown Minneapolis. The Handicraft Guild produced some exquisite examples of craft and artwork and promoted a values system that still resonates here today. The Handicraft Guild of Minneapolis emerged in the early 20th century as the heart of Minnesota’s Arts & Crafts Movement, but its origins are rooted much earlier in the cultural life of Minnesota’s Twin Cities. Supporters of the arts in Minnesota at the turn of the century believed that art schools were more important initially than the development of art museums and collections. Schools, it was thought, would establish the community’s commitment to art and bring a growing, ever changing pool of artists and ideas to the area. The Handicraft Guild of Minneapolis profited from this philosophy, evolving from a number of small artistic associations to be formally incorporated in 1905. Through its success in furthering the “intimate relation between the Theory and Practice of Art,” the Guild attracted distinguished instructors, studio artists, lecturers, and students, including painter Grant Wood and tilemaker Ernest A. Batchelder.
