The Crafting Guild in Runescape was originally available to members only, but was given to free users after a few months.
The Crafting Guild is located south-west of Falador and north of Rimmington. A Crafting level of 40 is required to enter the guild as well as a brown apron (or crafting cape), which can be received from Malignius Mortifer. Brown aprons can also be bought from the Varrock clothing shop. A brown apron is no longer required after completing hard set of Falador tasks.
There are several alternative methods for directly reaching the crafting guild. A Skill necklace may be used to teleport to the Crafting Guild, and is the fastest method of reaching it. The second fastest method is using the Clan vexillum's unlimited teleport to the clan camp, which is right next to the guild. Thirdly, there is a balloon post slightly to the north of the guild entrance. A Rimmington House teleport or a Falador teleport is finally the furthest from the guild.
