Suffolk Craft Society

The Suffolk Craft Society was formed in 1970 to promote the value and importance of contemporary crafts and currently supports around 110 individual craftspeople in the creation of their work across a wide range of craft skills. 

The Society is best known for their summer exhibition of its makers' work in Aldeburgh each year. The Society also seeks to promote and sell makers work through the Society run Gallery 2 in Ipswich Town Hall Galleries. Over the years occasional one-off events have been organised and smaller show case displays. 

Members of the Suffolk Craft Society include craft makers of baskets, ceramics, furniture, glass, jewellery, silver, musical instruments, prints, sculptures, textiles and wood, offering professional residencies, workshops and demonstrations for schools, colleges and adult groups in the following disciplines: ceramics, jewellery, textiles, print-making, calligraphy, spinning and dyeing, stained glass and sculpture

The society holds an annual summer exhibition, at Peter Pears Gallery in Aldeburgh, and at Christmas from 5th November to 24th December at the society's permanent exhibition in Gallery 2 in Ipswich Town Hall, the ideal place to pick up unique Christmas presents for friends and family
