During the Middle ages, a group of artisans was known as a guild. In order to be taken seriously as a craftsman, a person had to be part of a guild. Guilds would take on apprentices and teach them trade secrets.
Craftsmen were people who pursued crafts professionally. They included cobblers, potters, bakers, carpenters, stonemasons, wheelwrights, silversmiths, and so on. They were important in the culture, and were found everywhere there was any group of people living.
As the Middle Ages continued, the craftsmen tended more and more to band together in guilds to regulate their work. The guilds produced standard tests of people's skills, saw to it that apprentices were properly taught, and maintained prices and standards. Eventually, the guilds of many places entered into greater organizations with other guilds, both trades guilds and merchant guilds, to provide good government for towns and cities in which they operated.
A group of craft workers could be formally organized into a guild. There were many crafts guilds, such as a guild for soap makers and a guild for silk workers. There were also merchant guilds.
