Annual Membership


There are many excellent benefits to being a member of the Stockport Art Guild – not least of which is that you will have regular opportunities to share your passion for art with other, like-minded people.

You’ll be glad to know that we are a warm, convivial bunch, so whether you’re a novice or a more accomplished artist you’ll be made to feel most welcome at any of our weekly portrait and life drawing evenings, and, of course, the workshops and art demonstrations that we hold here throughout the year.

As well as being eligible to attend these events, membership also entitles you to submit work for inclusion in our annual art exhibition, with each member having one piece automatically accepted for display. Work from every member is also displayed on our website free of charge, either to sell or just show.

Read below for more details.



Membership benefits include:

  • A free copy of the Stockport Art Guild newsletter
  • Eligibility to attend our AGM
  • 10% off all art materials at Turner’s Art Shop, Stockport
  • 5% off framing from Berrisford Framing, Glossop.
  • Discounted entry for workshops and demonstrations.
  • Display your work free on the Guild’s website in your own personal online gallery
  • StockpART Commemorative Book available at a discounted price (£10)

The joining fee for members is currently £30.00 per year, while junior membership for those under 18 years is free.

If you are interested in joining Stockport Art Guild but would like to come along and see what goes on before committing, 
then we invite you to join us at one of our Monday-evening portrait sessions, or Thursday-evening life drawing classes. If after your visit you would like to become a member, you can either pick up a membership form at the Gallery.

If you would prefer to print-off your own membership application and bring it into the Gallery, then please download the pdf below:
