Join the Cotswold Craftsmen.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Cotswold Craftsmen.

Please complete the application form and attach some examples of your work and email to the membership secretary at . Following the receipt of this form, your application will be assessed by the committee. If your work is considered to be potentially suitable for the group, you will be invited to make a personal presentation of your work at a selection meeting, which takes place twice each year.

Application Deadlines:
– Spring Selection 20th May *please pencil in Monday 17th June for the display day
– Winter Selection 1st December *Display day TBC third week of January.
Selection meetings are for invited applicants to share their work and meet some of us in the guild, a great opportunity to learn more about one another’s practices and get more insight into the guild. This usually takes place at our gallery in Nailsworth and it can take a few hours to set up, have the informal interview and pack down.

It is strongly recommended that the range of work displayed and offered for assessment at this stage is as comprehensive as possible. Successful applicants will be offered 12 months provisional membership.

During your probationary year, your work will be appraised at shows by all members of the group. After 12 months, full membership will be considered by the Committee and you will be notified shortly after this meeting of the outcome.

There is an annual subscription fee of £75 for all Members, plus a one-off registration fee of £15 for new members.
