Stage One – Application
We welcome applications which should be submitted on the form provided, along with the requested images, and returned to the Membership Coordinator, for an intial review by the committee members. Please make sure that you fulfill our membership criteria, which you can find here >>
Once you have been accepted to proceed to stage two we will ask you to send us a cheque for £10 made out to Suffolk Craft Society to cover administration costs.
If you are a former society member wishng to rejoin in the same discipline as before, and not more than 5 years has elapsed since you left, you do not need to reapply formally. In this instance contact us via email@example.com to be readmmitted.
Stage Two – Selection
Successful applicants are then invited to submit a simple video demonstrating more about their work and working practice, and to attend for interview with a group made up of experienced and selected members of the Society. Wherever possible the selection committee will include a representative from the same discipline as the applicant. The majority of successful applicants are offered membership for a one year period in the first instance.
Our subscription year starts on 1 April. If you join part way through the year the subscription will be adjusted on a pro rata basis. Failure to pay the subscription due within 2 months of selection will invalidate the selection but will not preclude a future application. Subscription for a full year’s membership is £50.
Makers applying for membership should send their application form along with images (preferably via email) to our membership coordinator Elizabeth Chester via firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to the address to the address on the form.
