25 Apr Wrights and Coopers
The Wrights and Coopers have always represented a broad church of craftsmen, with men using common materials and tools in their line of work, all falling under the shared umbrella when the Seven Incorporated Trades was established.
These included wheelwrights, millwrights, cartwrights, shipwrights and housewrights – the term once used to describe those in the joinery trade. The coopers represented a sizeable proportion of the membership along with members taken from the ranks of woodturners, carvers and cabinetmakers.
The artistry and talents of generations of craftsmen live on in modern guises through today’s members, adapting to meet modern requirements without losing sight of the commitment to quality the Seven Incorporated Trades of Aberdeen has always promised to uphold and promote.
