Member Benefits (This is work in progress and hopefully more will be added soon)

The benefit our members most appreciate at the moment is access to a group of like minded makers and suppliers.

This is through:

  • Virtual and real life meet-ups
  • Slack
  • #MakersHour on Twitter (every Wednesday 8pm-9pm UK time)

Other benefits include:

  • Discounts and offers from suppliers and services:
    10% off voucher from Adafruit
    10% off voucher from The Pi Hut
  • One year free web hosting and backup from Pinkeye Graphics*
  • Legal services
  • Workshops, webinars, and training:
    IBM
    Autodesk Fusion 360
    RS Components
  • Discounts on Guild of Makers events and workshops

*Terms and conditions apply

Membership is open to all – whether you are professional, hobbyist, a beginner or experienced Maker.

If you think the benefits of the Guild, with this focus, would benefit you and you would like to join, then you are welcome to.

Later, we may offer accredited memberships, where you are peer reviewed and then are able to use the Guild logo as something like a Kite Mark. But that is for the future.

Currently we are only accepting members from those over 18 years old.
