2024 Chapter Meetings

Lancaster Designer Craftsmen (LDC) Chapter meetings are open to all LDC Chapter members and you are always welcome to bring a guest. We encourage you to attend!

Chapter meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month throughout the year at the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen (PGC – our umbrella organization) offices at 335 N. Queen Street (second floor) in Lancaster at 7:00 p.m. If you cannot be present, you can attend the meetings via zoom (although you will not be able to participate in the“make and take” events).

The dates for these meetings are listed below (subject to change).

Chapter meetings include educational/informational presentations, demonstrations, “make and take” activities along with other social activities such as a fall pizza party and a December holiday party. Meetings also provide an opportunity for you to share your current work, have your work critiqued, and to network with other craftspeople. As a member you will receive regular newsletters to keep you informed about current events.

Other Activities and Events

  • Social Media – Social Media has become a great avenue to highlight and present yourself to the world.  LDC would like to help promote its members as well as the Chapter through our social media accounts.  If you are participating in an event or would like to get further visibility for you work, feel free to send pictures and any information to our social media chair Beckie Hynes.  Also don’t forget to follow us on the various social media sites to see what your fellow members are doing.

  • Ware Center Events – LDC partnered with the Ware Center in Lancaster for a Makers Market in December 2021 providing several LDC artisans the opportunity to display and sell their merchandise.  It was a very successful evening.  We will be continuing our work with the Ware Center to allow members to participate in future Ware Center events.
