The National Guild of Découpeurs (NGD) was founded in 1970 as a non-profit organization dedicated to providing education in the art of découpage, to encouraging a high level of quality, and to offering an exchange of creative ideas and a Annual Convention and Exhibition. NGD is now a prestigious worldwide Guild. As growth develops, regional chapters are formed where members can join together to hold workshops and learn the many techniques of découpage. Inspiration, creativity and knowledge are generated, leading the découpage artist into new horizons and lasting relationships. In 2008 we added to National Guild of Découpeurs the name Découpage Artists Worldwide as subtitle to better reflect our growing international membership.
