The abiding value of membership is being part of a network of shared interests and commitment. The Society seeks to enhance maker's status in the cultural sector and to share their experience with other makers and find a sympathetic audience to show their endeavours. A more tangible benefit is one of promoting and marketing makers' work while supporting the development of their creative work. Members have an entry in the Makers Directory on the website.
This website has the capability to sell members' work over the Internet. The society is well placed to act as a broker to promote and negotiate the commissioning of craftwork for its makers. A Society Newsletter is produced three times a year. The Society aims to be able to offer the membership professional development support, particularly in areas of business and marketing advice with the possibility of creative mentoring for newer members.
