Join The Society

We are a friendly community of like-minded people, who value quality craftsmanship, the importance of learning skills, educating others about craft and working to make craft accessible.

Join us as an established designer maker, a student or become a Friend of the Society who will support our charitable activities and allow us to continue to seek out and champion new craftspeople.

Apply to become a selected member

Selected membership is subject to an application being made and assessment of work by the Selection Committee. When considering your application, the Selection Committee will review and agree which level of membership they feel is most appropriate for you at this stage in your career.

Selected members may exhibit their work with the Society, have post nominal letters and will be featured on the Society website with a maker page.
