An exciting opportunity to lead the Society through its next phase of development 
We are looking for someone with a passion for the creative arts, ideally including crafts, and with vision and motivational skills.

You will chair the Committee which runs the Society, a majority of which are makers. The role is voluntary and unremunerated and for a three-year term which may be extended by mutual consent. The current Chair is retiring from the post at the end of March 2022.

Welcome to the Suffolk Craft Society   

From its foundation in 1970, The Society’s objective of promoting excellence in designer craft-making and supporting the work of Suffolk based and affiliated craft-makers has been constant. Initially a small group of ceramicists led the way in the formation of the SCS and under its first Chairman, Commander John Jacob, the Society met at Snape Maltings. 
John Chipperfield the veteran and much-admired ceramicist, was a founder member and still exhibits as an Honorary Member. Over the years several hundred talented makers across a whole range of craft disciplines have been elected to membership. Many have gone on to forge successful careers in their field. If you care about nurturing and supporting great craft skills, please consider becoming a Friend, or get in touch if you are interested in becoming a maker in the society. 

   Looking back at our 2021 Exhibitions      After a necessarily very quiet year in 2020, the Society was pleased to put on three exhibitions across the county in 2021, featuring a wide range of our talented makers and providing a much needed opportunity to meet with our customers and Friends     With our traditional home in Aldeburgh no longer available to us, we were able to try new venues in different towns. We were at the Pond Gallery, Snape Maltings in June, a brand new gallery space at the Longshed, Woodbridge in July, and the Guildhall, Bury St Edmunds in November     You can see photos of these exhibitions in our News and Events section here>> Remember to check back there regularly to see where we will be next year, and in the meanwhile don't forget our online shop
