What is included?
All Members have access to our dedicated members area of the website which comprises a regular Newsletter along with notes and information on various aspects of the crafts carried out at the Guild.
As a member you will also be able to enter your work into the Sales and Exhibitions held during the year. These events are well attended and a highlight of the Guild's year. This year we have also added a Sales Page to the website where members can advertise and sell creations. A small proportion of the proceeds from sales goes towards the running of the Guild.
