Organization

MISSION STATEMENT: The Hamakua Artisans’ Guild seeks to foster
and promote art and craft from the members of the Guild and to enhance artistic
creativity on the Hamakua Coast.

The Hamakua Artisans’ Guild was formed in 1999 by a group of artists living
and working on the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. Membership
is open to anyone that supports the mission statement.

Artisan members are included in the directory. Some are linked to photos, bios,
statements and contact information. Contact individual artisans to find out more
about their work, where to find it and how to visit their studios.

The Guild currently sponsors several events each year on the Big Island of
Hawaii, along the Hamakua Coast. These include the an annual Studio Tour and Sale,
when Artisan members of the Guild open their studios to the public for a weekend that
includes demonstrations, hands on activities, and displays of their artwork.
Other events include special exhibits and fund raisers. go to Events
