Artisans, Caste of (caste), a very broad caste which includes hundreds of sub-castes, concerned with the crafts associated with production and maintenance of wood, fiber, and horn implements and household goods. Since any production of hand-made goods, no matter its use, is considered by the typical Gorean to be a work of art, this caste is very broad indeed.
The fairs, too, however, have many other functions. For example, they serve as a scene of caste conventions, and as loci for the sharing of discoveries and research. It is here, for example, that physicians, and builders and artisansmay meet and exchange ideas and techniques.
