Membership benefits

Membership benefits will include:

  • The right to register to take part in POS events, such as the Open Studio Festival or the Perthshire Art Trail, for which there will be separate registration fees.
  • Membership listing on the permanent POS website with a link to the artist’s contact details, etc.
  • Discounts from related suppliers (currently being arranged). Suppliers providing discounts will be given a QR code that takes them through to the membership listing page of the website to check names against a membership list. Members will receive a simple printed version of the places where discounts are available and a small pack of other information.
  • Free attendance at one promotion/marketing workshop organised by POS per year, and priority registration for other workshops. These might include:
    • What to think about for a video/advert.
    • What to think about when framing
    • Making a stall work for you
    • Using photography to help sell your creations
    • An introduction to the Makers Space in Perth
  • The right to submit examples of work to membership exhibitions organised by POS, regardless of involvement in other POS events. Exhibitors may be limited by the size of locations or theme if used.
  • Attendance at the annual AGM and voting rights on the election of the Directors.
  • Membership of a closed Facebook group, that includes artist materials recycling opportunities, calls for other artist-related events and the ability to post to the group.
  • Ability to submit blog posts for consideration for publication on the website.
  • Discounts on advertising space in POS publications and on the website.


We are still in negotiation with some suppliers for discounts. In the meantime, here are some that are already agreed:

  • Craigrossie Printing is offering 50% off image photography (flat images, photography, paintings, collages, etc.) The photography is normally £20 per image which with discount would come in at £10 – this is regardless of size but with no editing.
    They are also offering 10% off their scanning and editing prices using their A3 professional art scanner @ 2400 x 4800 dpi (no editing included). 

    • raw image up to A3 = £5 per scan
    • raw image up to A2 = £10 per scan
    • raw image up to A1 = £18 per scan
      There is also 10% off editing with proofs – this includes test prints and a final A4 proof on Archival Matt 230gsm paper, chargeable at £15 per quarter-hour.
  • Rob MacKenzie from Wide Angle Media is available to do short adverts and video/photography work for members. He is offering a 10% discount for his services. He has worked for the BBC and is highly skilled.
  • Greyfriars Art, the art supply shop in Perth, is happy to support Perthshire Open Studios with a 10% discount to members. N.B. Great news that they are staying open!
  • WASPS at the Perth Creative Exchange have agreed a discount on the Forteviot Room for meetings and workshops. POS members will be able to rent the room at a reduced rate. It’s usually charged at £15 per hour which is £60 for four hours. The four-hour block is reduced to £30, a generous 50% off.
  • 10% off framing at the following suppliers:
    • Angela at Artisanand in Aberfeldy.
    • Tony Fitzpatrick at Latchburn Framing in Dunning.
    • Barry Allan Scott Framing at River Edge Lodges, Bridge of Earn.

Working in partnership

We are developing joint approaches with other artist organisations, such as Perthshire Artisans, GrowBiz, the Creative Exchange team, and (we hope) others in the sector which will include discounts on event registration but not on membership fees.
