As a makers co-operative, Every Cloud provides a supported ‘next step’ that is needed to help individual members to continue to develop professionally and to reach their full potential as artists and craftsmen and women.
Members are committed to the cooperative principles of self-help and self-determination, democracy and equality; and in the ethical values of social responsibility and caring for others.
Membership of Every Cloud is open to any person over the age of 16 but to help us fulfill our constituted purpose we have the following criteria against which to consider membership. These are listed below:
1) Are you an artist or craftsperson who would welcome support from Every Cloud in order to advance your aspirations and help you to fulfil your potential as an artist and craftsperson?
2) Are you able to benefit the organisation as whole to deliver its purpose with your skills and experience (which may or may not relate to being an artist / craftsperson yourself)?
3) Is your work of sufficient quality to be offered for sale in Every Cloud shop & gallery?
4) Is your work complementary to or repeating the work of existing members?
If you complete a membership enquiry form, you will be invited to Stanton Farmhouse to show us your work and these criteria will be explained and explored in more detail at this time.
