The Crafting guild is a phenomenal place for low-level crafters because they do not have to leave the guild to train. For example, players could mine, soften, throw, and fire clay without needing to leave the guild or wasting time traveling from the potter's wheel to the bank. In addition to clay, you could obtain hides, tan them, and craft the tanned hides at the guild. However, if you need to use a bank, you're out of luck; the closest banks are in Falador. Below is a map of some proposed routes to Falador's banks.
A quick way to access a bank and return to the guild for P2P could be to alternate between using a Ring of dueling, to teleport to the Castle Wars arena, and a Skills necklace to teleport back to the guild. F2P players could use the Falador teleport to avoid walking to the bank one way, at the very least.
On the first floor of the building, there are four main quadrants: the northeastern quadrant (pottery throwing), the northwestern quadrant (pottery firing), the central quadrant (sink), and the southwestern quadrant (this quadrant does not contribute to crafting). You will find a fairly large gold, silver, and clay mine to the east, and a cow field to the west. This guide will break down each of these sectors one-by-one.
The northeastern quadrant of the building is primarily useful for throwing pottery. In the back of this room is a table with an Empty jug respawn on top of it. Next, there are four potter's wheels which are primarily affiliated with throwing Soft clay (check the Crafting Skill Guide for more information). On the border of this quadrant is a table with a Hammer and a Chisel respawn on it.
The next quadrant for discussion is the northwestern quadrant, which is useful for firing pottery. At the back of this room, you should easily see the pottery oven, which you could use to fire Pots, Pie dishes, Bowls, and Plantpots (check the Crafting Skill Guide for more information). In front of the oven is a table with a Bracelet mould and an Amulet mould respawn.
The final two quadrants of the building on the first floor will be discussed together. In the central quadrant of the building, you will see a sink, which can be used with the Empty jug to soften Clay. Also, you will see a staircase, which would lead you to the second floor of the building (discussed later).
If you go inside the Crafting Guild and walk to the east side of the building, you will be in a mine which consists of mostly gold and silver rocks. There are a few clay rocks in this area. Players usually use this mine to obtain Gold and Silver ores, so you should be expecting at least one other player there. Remember that there is no bank nearby to store your ores! In total, there are nineteen rocks at the mine: six clay rocks, six silver rocks, and seven gold rocks.
To conclude the first floor of the guild, we will discuss the cow holding area on the west side of the guild. This area can be accessed from outside of the guild on the west side, so none of the requirements at the top apply to access this area. In this area, you will find two Dairy cows, many Cows, and one Cow Calf. You can use a Bucket with a Dairy cow to obtain a Bucket of milk (for cooking). Additionally, you can kill Cows and the Cow calf for Raw beef (for cooking). The primary purpose for the Cows at the crafting guild is to obtain their hides, which can be tanned on the second floor of the guild. North of the guild you will find some Sheep, whose Wool can be used to spin Balls of wool.
The second floor of the building is useful for tanning Cowhides and spinning Wool, Flax, Tree roots, Sinew, and Yak hair into Balls of wool, Bow strings, Crossbow strings, and Rope (check the Crafting Skill Guide for more information). If you want to tan one or more hides, simply speak to the Tanner. You will need money to tan a hide, which is clearly displayed on the Tanning GUI (check the Crafting Skill Guide for more information). To wrap up the second floor, on the back table you will find a Necklace mould respawn and a Holy mould respawn. On the front table, you will find a Ring mould and a Tiara mould respawn. On the barrel, you will find a pair of Shears.
When you have achieved the arduous task of obtaining 99 Crafting, speak to the Master Crafter on the first floor of the Crafting Guild. He will sell you a Crafting cape for 99,000 gp. Please check the Skillcape Special Report for more information.

The Crafting Guild contains a lot of resources to aid in the leveling of this skill. You do not have to leave the guild at all to level crafting, which makes it a very convenient place. If you are confused on how to use the resources that can be obtained in this guild, please consult the Crafting Skill Guide.
Hopefully you will now understand and utilize this wonderful guild to a great power to achieve a high crafting level.
