The Worshipful Company of Joiners and Ceilers is a Livery Company, one of the medieval trade guilds of the City of London still in operation today.

This exhibition celebrates the Company’s history and its crafts of joinery and woodcarving, to mark the 450th anniversary of the granting of the Company’s Royal Charter in 1571.

The display includes masterpieces of joinery and woodcarving such as the 1754 mahogany Master’s chair made by Past Master Edward Newman and the new Master’s chair completed in 2021. It also features the original Royal Charter and examples of tools and woods used by joiners and woodcarvers (including 5,000-year-old bog oak), as well as special commissions of contemporary carving to showcase the historic crafts which are very much alive and well in the 21st century.

In the exhibition you’ll discover more about the Company’s past, present and future, with insight into the work they do today to ensure generations of joiners and woodcarvers continue to thrive.
