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. 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
