Welcome to our Virtual Summer Exhibition 

Our makers have been very active during lockdown so we have got them to send us images of their very latest work.  
For our 5oth Anniversary fifty makers are showcased here on the website,  
It will run from now until 31st August in our Virtual Summer Exhibition. 
You will find everything from jewellery to wood working and furniture, textiles to ceramics, printmaking to book binding, glass to sculpture. 

2020 is a significant year for the Suffolk Craft Society as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary 

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 in our Anniversary Year, or get in touch if you are interested in becoming a maker in the society.
