I’m including the category of Study Groups as a resource. Study groups are NOT guilds, but more likely than not the remnants of a floundering guild. They are designed to encourage a common interest in lettering arts. They gather as often or as little as they choose without any formal structure, but perhaps with enough interest, a guild could come to life. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? tjk
