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.
