Membership - Join The Association

We welcome new applications for membership from craft workers in the area. The benefits of membership include:
  • Preferential rates and priority booking for stands at our craft fairs
  • Regular newsletter from the Association
  • Access to pooled information and experience
  • Being in contact with other members and the Committee.

Restrictions

There are a few restrictions placed on membership, as established by the Association's constitution.
  1. No more than 10% of membership should reside outside the counties of old Gwynedd and Clwyd (i.e. outside North Wales)
  2. No one craft type may exceed 20% of the total membership of the Association (for example, membership applications from jewellery makers may be turned down if more than 20% of the membership consist of jewellery makers already)
  3. Candidates for membership shall make written application to the Membership Secretary on the form provided and a sample of work to be provided for viewing at a future committee meeting, Please contact the Membership Secretary to arrange this. Membership cannot normally be granted without seeing a sample of your work.
Additionally there are the general requirements that your products are wholly or substantially hand-made by you (no bought-in ready made products may be sold at our craft fairs) and the requirement for you to have insurance. You are urged to contact the Membership Secretary first to discuss your application before sending off the application form, if only to be told the current membership fee which is not shown on the application form!
